Description

Shell of variable form and size, in most cases inequivalve, often with radial ribs or folds; hinge margin occasionally with diverging lamellae or strong, identical teeth anteriorly and posteriorly; an anterior adductor muscle absent; mantle margin in most cases with a broad internal fold and with tentacles, frequently also with eyes; lip margins folded; foot often without byssus, sometimes rudimentary; gill lamellae smooth or pleated; the cerebral ganglia are displaced more or less far backward, and may even be fused with the visceral ganglia. The habits are variable; a few groups are cemented by one valve, others are able to swim by opening and closing the shell.
