  • Abstract There are fossil Mytiloidea assigned to the Septiferinae such as Coxesia mezzalirai and species of Admytilus and Assytilus. Extant species of the Septiferinae are assigned to Septifer and Mytilisepta and date from the end of the Triassic, >200 mya, and the end of the Cretaceous, >65 mya, respectively. All septiferines possess shells characterised by an external radially bifurcate ribbing and internal umbonal septa associated with which is the anterior adductor muscle. The Indo-West… CONTINUE READING
