  • Tellidorella (type species: T. cristulata) is a small eastern Pacific bivalve presently classified in the Cardiniidae, a family otherwise known as fossils from the Paleozoic and early Mesozoic. Evidence from shell characters including external sculpture, hinge teeth, and adductor muscle scars suggests a more appropriate placement in the subfamily Myrteinae of Lucinidae. This is the first record of a myrteine in the eastern Pacific. Additional keywords: Bivalvia, Myrteinae
