bivalve id
The family identification page only shows gastropods. Where on the internet can I go to identify bivalves?

Re: bivalve id

We hope to expand the family identification page to include bivalves.  I must admit, I prepared most of the images for that project over a year ago, but then got distracted by other matters.  I'll have to contact David soon about getting that done.  I'm afraid there isn't a wide-ranging bivalve site available, nothing comparable to, for example, <!-- w --><a class="postlink" href=";">;</a><!-- w --> If you have some idea of the family a bivalve might belong to, Poppe's conchology site - <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m --> - can be very helpful in pinning down exact species.  And of course, if you can take clear photos of your bivalves and post them - or post links to them - here, you can often get ID's from other collectors.

This site is not bad:
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m -->
There are quite a few good sites out there, it is just a question of looking for them. For example the Jacksonville Shell club site is good for Caribbean molluscs. If you get on a website check for any 'links' to other sites, they can be very useful at times. If you get one you like just Bookmark it to your favourites.

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m --> and <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m --> are quite useful for bivalves too. The latter one even has pictured guide for family identification (<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m --> ).
