  • Abstract: The Indo-West Pacific montacutid Curvemysella paula(A. Adams, 1856) is the sole representative of its genus and the only known bivalve that is an obligate commensal of hermit crabs. As such, studies on it are accordingly very few. It lives in small groups byssally attached to the internal columella of the host's adopted shell. This paper describes the species from a wave-exposed beach in central Vietnam at Danang. Here, it was living with Diogenes goniochirus, but elsewhere in Hong… CONTINUE READING
