The Family Mesodesmatidae (Mollusca: Bivalvia)

  • Javier H. Signorelli
Chapter

Abstract

The living species distributed in the American continent belonging to the family Mesodesmatidae Gray, 1840 are redescribed in this chapter. Two valid genera are recognized. The genus Mesodesma Deshayes, 1832 In Bruguière et al., 1789–1832 includes three living species. They are M. (Mesodesma) donacium (Lamarck, 1818), M. (Ceronia) arctatum (Conrad, 1831) and M. (Ceronia) deauratum (Turton, 1822). Finally, the genus Amarilladesma Huber, 2010, recently described, includes the Southwestern Atlantic A. mactroides (Reeve, 1854c).
