We examined patterns of morphologic evolution in Caryocorbula, a common bivalve genus of the Caribbean Neogene, to evaluate the roles that constraint and selection play in its apparent morphologic conservatism. With multivariate analyses using landmark-based geometric morphometrics, we examined the relationship of valve size and outline shape within the Caryocorbula + (Bothrocorbula + Hexacorbula) clade, and within 21 morphospecies of Caryocorbula, all from Neogene deposits of the Caribbean… CONTINUE READING
