The Horseshoe Crab of the Genus Limulus: Living Fossil or Stabilomorph?
- Biology, Environmental SciencePloS one
It is shown that there are no important morphological differences between the Kcynia Formation specimens and extant juvenile representatives of the genus Limulus, and the adoption of a new term stabilomorphism is proposed.
A single origin for the limnetic–euryhaline taxa in the Corbulidae (Bivalvia)
- Biology, Environmental Science
The first molecular phylogenetic study of the Corbulidae is presented, analysing DNA sequences from the 18S rRNA and 28S r RNA genes, separately and in combination and resolved as monophyletic.
Paleoecology of naticid–molluscan prey interaction during the Late Jurassic (Oxfordian) in Kutch, India: evolutionary implications
- Environmental Science, GeographyJournal of Paleontology
It is suggested that both turritellines and naticid evolved during the Jurassic, and the prey–predator interaction between them was established shortly thereafter, and among bivalves, corbulids also became important prey of naticids in the same spatiotemporal framework.
Cenozoic Corbulidae (Bivalvia, Mollusca) from the Indian subcontinent—palaeobiogeography and revision of three species from Kutch, India
- Environmental Science, GeographyArabian Journal of Geosciences
Three corbulid species were discriminated from the Cenozoic strata of Kutch, India. Two of them are Caestocorbula gujaratensis n. sp. and Bicorbula kutchensis n. sp. from the Palaeocene to Middle…
Comprehensive Database on Induan (Lower Triassic) to Sinemurian (Lower Jurassic) Marine Bivalve Genera and Their Paleobiogeographic Record
- Environmental Science, Geography
This was a critical time for bivalve evolution and diversification, which began with the recovery from the Permian—Triassic extinction and ended with the Recovery from the Triassic—Jurassic extinction.
Palaeoenvironment and taphonomy of a Late Jurassic (Late Tithonian) Lagerstätte from central Poland
- Environmental Science, Geography
A rich assemblage of exceptionally preserved marine and terrestrial fossils occurs in fine-grained limestones in the upper part of the Late Tithonian (Middle Volgian) shallowing upward carbonate…

A Synoptical Classification of the Bivalvia (Mollusca)
- Environmental Science, Geology
Preface This classification summarizes the suprageneric taxonomy of the Bivalvia for the upcoming revision of the Bivalvia volumes of the Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology, Part N.
A phylogenetic and morphologic context for the radiation of an endemic fauna in a long-lived lake: Corbulidae (Bivalvia; Myoida) in the Miocene Pebas Formation of western Amazonia
- Environmental Science, GeographyPaleobiology
It is considered that freshwater corbulids arose once within the family, prior to the Cenozoic, with three distinct freshwater lineages present at their first appearance in the late Paleocene of North America, thus making the Pebasian system a cradle of diversity for several corbulid lineages.
Two new species of Lentidium (Myida: Corbulidae) from tropical northern Australia: remarkable fresh/fluviatile to brackish-water bivalves
- Environmental Science, Biology
Two new extant species from tropical northern Australia are described, of which L. dalyfluvialis n.
