Allometric shell growth in infaunal burrowing bivalves ...

We present two cases of study of ontogenetic allometry in outlines of bivalves using longitudinal data, a rarity among fossils, based on the preserved post-larval record of shells. The examples are two infaunal burrowing bivalves of the southern South America, Claibornicardia paleopatagonica (Archiheterodonta: Carditidae) (early Paleocene) and Crassatella kokeni (Archiheterodonta ...

Early Miocene Gastropods from the Felli Section (Proto ...

INTRODUCTION. The early Miocene marine mollusc faunas of the Eastern Mediterranean are relatively poorly known compared to the coeval faunas of the north-eastern Atlantic (Cossmann & Peyrot 1909-1935; Lozouet et al. 2001; Lozouet 2014).This is partly due to the poor preservation of fossils in the Mediterranean region (Lozouet 2014) and the limited amount of available outcrops.

This specimen shows gastropod shells which have accumulated in muddy sediment, and then been 'current aligned', i.e., the movement of the water has turned them so they face the same direction. This specimen comes from the Cenozoic of New Zealand.

Chesapecten - Wikipedia

Description. Like some other large scallops, the shells of Chesapecten are characterized by a pattern of wide ribs which radiate outward from the apex of the shell. A distinctive feature of Chesapecten is that the radial ribs on its shell are crossed by much smaller, rough, concentric ribs, which follow the contours of the edges of the shell (are "conmarginal").

Miocene - Wikipedia

The Miocene boundaries are not marked by a single distinct global event but consist rather of regionally defined boundaries between the warmer Oligocene and the cooler Pliocene Epoch. The apes first evolved, arose, and diversified during the early Miocene (Aquitanian and Burdigalian stages), becoming widespread in the Old World.
