Feature Expedition

Australian Museum Bivalve 30 Expedition

SpecimensAustralian Museum Malacology Collection

Bivalvia, commonly called the bivalves, is a taxonomic class of marine and freshwater molluscs that have a laterally compressed body enclosed by a shell in two hinged parts. The two rounded halves called valves are usually mirror images of each other and they join at one edge by a flexible ligament which, in conjunction with nearby interlocking "teeth" on the two valves, are known collectively as the hinge.
