Bivalvia - Pectinida - Pectinidae

  • Chlamydidae was named by Korobkov (1960).

    It was synonymized subjectively with Chlamydinae by Clapham (2015).
  • Hinnitinae was named by Habe (1977) [HISTORY: Synonym of Tribe Chlamydini von Teppner 1922]. It is extant.

    It was synonymized subjectively with Chlamydinae by Coan et al. (2000).

If no rank is listed, the taxon is considered an unranked clade in modern classifications. Ranks may be repeated or presented in the wrong order because authors working on different parts of the classification may disagree about how to rank taxa.

A. Beu and M. Taviani 2013Pectinidae with plesiomorphic macrosculpture of radial costae with further costae intercalated or subdi- vided, increasing in number during ontogeny (tribe Chlamydini), later fixed in number, without further intercalated and subdivided costae (tribes Mimachlamydi- ni and Aequipectinini); with plesiomorphic LV preradial microsculpture of simple antimarginal ridgelets (Chlamy- dini), intersecting later with commarginal ridges to develop into closely spaced, hemispherical pits (Mimachl- amydini and Aequipectinini); without carinae on internal expressions of exterior costae, except in a few unusual genera (Chlamydini) or consistently with internal carinae (Mimachlamydini and Aequipectinini); plesiomorphic mi- crosculpture after preradial area of obvious commarginal ridges in most Chlamydini, modified variously by inter- section with antimarginal ridgelets, later forming a characteristic herringbone pattern (Mimachlamydini); commarginal ridges sinuous, curved towards ventral mar- gin of disc in costal interspaces in later taxa (Aequipecti- nini). Posterior auricles small, with concave posterior outline in most taxa (Chlamydini, Mimachlamydini), auricles later becoming more equal (Aequipectinini). Most taxa retaining functional ctenolium and deep byssal notch as adults (chlamydoid shell form, resulting from a byssally attached life; Chlamydini, Mimachlamydini) although some reduce depth of notch, lose ctenolium and become reclining as adults (aequipectinoid shell form; some Chlamydini, most Aequipectinini).
