Comparative Anatomy of Selected Marine Bivalves from the Florida Keys, with Notes on Brazilian Congeners (Mollusca: Bivalvia)

This work presents the first anatomical description of any species of Scissula, based on S. similis, and provides the most complete anatomical descriptions yet presented for all species, most especially for Solemya occidentalis, Limopsis aff.

The genus Dallocardia (Mollusca: Bivalvia: Cardiidae) in the Southwestern Atlantic Ocean

The taxonomy of the species recorded from the Argentinean and Magellanic biogeographical provinces was reviewed, revealing that D. muricata is a moderately rapid shallow burrower from intertidal and subtidal regions in coarse, grassy and muddy sand bottoms, presenting adaptations to live in low-energy environments of sheltered bays and inlets.

Larval and juvenile development of the Iceland cockle Ciliatocardium ciliatum (Fabricius, 1780) (Bivalvia: Cardiidae)

The paper considers the development of Ciliatocardium ciliatum from the stage of straight hinge to juvenile and the main stages of organogenesis were described and special attention was paid to the formation of the digestive and muscular systems.

Cardiidae (Mollusca: Bivalvia) from the Chipola Formation, Calhoun County, Florida

Variation in the distribution of some of the species poses problems, probably of ecologic nature, that at present cannot satisfactorily be resolved; others appear to be of possible time/ stratigraphic significance.

Phytogeny of the Cardiidae ( Mollusca , Bivalvia ) : Protocardiinae , Laevicardiinae , Lahilliinae , Tulongocardiinae subfam . n . and Pleuriocardiinae

A cladistic analysis is undertaken of the genera and subgenera of these cardiid taxa, plus several Mesozoic taxa which have never been assigned to any subfamily, to find that Pleuriocardiinae, Laevicardiinee, and the remaining members of the Cardiidae form a monophyletic group.

Their Day in the Sun: molecular phylogenetics and origin of photosymbiosis in the ‘other’ group of photosymbiotic marine bivalves (Cardiidae: Fraginae)

Worldwide sampling of all fragine genera and subgenera with phylogenetic reconstructions based on four gene regions does not support a monophyletic Fraginae, and maximum likelihood analyses strongly support a clade of European cardiids uniting species from three subfamilies.

Recent and fossil Clinocardiinae (Bivalvia, Cardiidae) of the World. VI. Genus Ciliatocardium Kafanov, 1974 (part II)

Key for identification of all Recent and fossil species and subspecies is given and a taxonomic review of the genus Ciliatocardium Kafanov is given.


The shell microstructure of Hemidonax donaciformis is unusual for a cardioidean, and suggests closer affinities with thesuperfamily Tellinoidea than with the superfamily Cardioidea.

Comparison of the structure of a Mississippian and a Holocene pen shell assemblage

Benthic assemblages associated with pen shells (Pelecypoda: Pinnidae) in a Holocene back-barrier marine environment and in an exposure of Mississippian rocks that are inferred to be back-barrier
