Present-day representatives of the genus Kelliella are mostly confined to the abyssal zone (2000-6000 m), while paleontological data suggest shallower bathymetric requirements for their fossil congeners. The Late Eocene to Miocene records are from shallow-water (20-50 m) deposits; Pliocene and Pleistocene species come from deposits typical of bathyal zone (400-2000 m). New species Kelliella barbara sp. n. is described from the Badenian (Middle Miocene) shallow-water sands in the southern slopes… 
The family Kelliellidae (Bivalvia: Heterodonta) from the deep Atlantic and its relationship with the family Vesicomyidae
It is concluded that the large, elongate, chalky shells of the genus Calyptogena and its relatives are distinct, at least, at subfamilial level.
The Middle Miocene of the Fore-Carpathian Basin (Poland, Ukraine and Moldova
Studies of Miocene sediments in the Fore-Carpathian Basin, conducted by geologists from the University of Warsaw have provided new insights on the distribution of the facies infilling the basin,
Bathyal Mollusca from the cold-water coral biotope of Santa Maria di Leuca (Apulian margin, southern Italy).
This paper describes 97 molluskan species recovered from bathyal bottoms off Santa Maria di Leuca (Puglia, Italy), in the northern Ionian Sea, and provides data about their taxonomy, geographical distribution, habitat, ecological requirements and fossil record.
Shell morphology of a new Brazilian species of the family Kelliellidae, with a brief review of the genus Kelliella (Mollusca: Bivalvia)
Based on specimens collected from shallow waters of the southeastern Brazilian coast, a new species of Kelliella is described, through a detailed description of its shell, which is compared with those from other species already referred for this genus.
Red-algal limestones in the Middle Miocene of the Carpathian Foredeep in Poland: facies variability and palaeoclimatic implications
The distribution of red-algal limestones in the Middle Miocene marine deposits of the Carpathian Foredeep is described. Main facies types are briefly characterized, based on the morphology of
Resolving the status of the families Vesicomyidae and Kelliellidae (Bivalvia: Venerida), with notes on their ecology
The relationship between Vesicomya and Kelliella is studied for the first time using not only morphological characters but also genetic divergence based on the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) gene, indicating that the genera are clearly distinct.
Seagrass mollusks as a model group for paleoecological and paleodiversity studies = Weekdieren van het zeegras als modelgroep voor paleomilieu en biodiversiteit studies = Seegrass Mollusken als Modelgruppe für Studien der Paläoökologie und Paläodiversität
This thesis represents one of eleven projects of the Throughflow program, focusing on Miocene fossils and their paleohabitats of East Kalimantan, Indonesia, and the collection of new data is needed in order to document the timing and context of diversification.
Vesicomyinae (Bivalvia: Vesicomyidae) of the Kuril–Kamchatka Trench and adjacent abyssal regions
For the first time for a vesicomyin bivalve molecular data is given for a species with an explicit morphological description and unambiguous taxonomic affiliation and data on distribution and morpho-anatomical characters of these species are provided.

Paleoecology of some molluscan assemblages from the badenian (Miocene) marine sandy facies of Poland
Abstract Three molluscan assemblages from the Badenian (Miocene) marine sandy facies of Poland are described in terms of their taxonomic composition, diversity, and trophic structure. The structural
Sporomorphs from the Jackson Group (upper Eocene) and adjacent strata of Mississippi and western Alabama
This palynological study is based on 71 outcrop and core samples of the Jackson Group and adjacent strata from the type area of the group in western Mississippi and also from eastern Mississippi and
The Abyssal molluscan fauna of the Norwegian sea and its relation to other faunas
It is concluded that at least a part of the fauna is a reminiscence of the old North Pacific fauna that lived in the Polar Basin before this was disconnected from the North Pacific by the formation of Bering Strait.
Growth and mortality in two Pleistocene bathyal micromorphic bivalves
Size-frequency and growth-ring data have been used to calculate mortality and growth patterns in two micromorphic bivalve species from pelagic mud of Lower-Middle Pleistocene age on Rhodes (Greece).
