Bivalvia

You'll find here a list of the bivalves I've observed in Perhentian islands and a photo of each of them. The list is not completed, many illustrations are missing and identifications are to be checked.

Comments are welcome: valtat.org

I've used here the classification of the Obis Indo-Pacific molluscan database. On each page there is a link to the corresponding page on the Obis database. There you'll find information about synonymy, ecology, distribution and bibliography. You can also find a bibliography, some websites on this site: references.
