Bivalve Mystery

Data: Hi Avril!

I am so glad to have stumbled across your website! I have two shells in my collection that I am having a difficult time identifying and maybe you can help me. I found these two shells years ago and they look the most like the "Artica" shell. I have attached detailed pictures of the two shells for you to review.

Thank you and I look forward t your response!

Please send andy thoughts, or positive identifications to: Kim


Positive Identification:


  • Kim's "artica" looks to be an Anodontia-- "without teeth".. ...David Kirsh

  • #3 looks like a "Buttercup", Anadontia alba or philippiana if it came from Florida/Caribbean. ...Peggy W.
