Marine Bivalvia (Mollusca) of Guam

Marine Bivalvia (Mollusca) of Guam

Published by Asaad Lahmar
The marine bivalves of Guam are documented from new
collections and 339 species recorded. Nevertheless Guam’s fauna
remains imperfectly known and is estimated to be considerably more
diverse. Such high diversity on a local scale in the west-central Pacific
suggests that bivalve diversity in the Indo-west Pacific is much higher
than previously recorded. Pteriomorphs and heterodonts dominate
Guam’s fauna, while protobranchs and anomalodesmatans comprise only
four species. Galeommatids represent the most species rich family, even
though they are uncommon in samples.
