From editor or global species database
Biology Type of larval development: not documented [inferred from prodissoconch morphology to be short planktonic, non-planktotrophic]  [details]

Diagnosis Shell large, up to 65 mm long, solid, equivalve, circular in shape and inflated, equilateral. Umbos situated on the vertical midline, very slightly prosogyrous, separated from the hinge line by a narrow triangular area covered by the ligament, which is dark brown. Sculpture of very fine comarginal cords and radial striae, giving a reticulated appearance under high magnification. Hinge wide and arched, taxodont, with no teeth under the umbo and between 6 and 12 teeth on each side. Exterior brown or yellowish, with irregular streaks of dark brown. Interior white, with a variable extension of brown patches. Periostracum more or less hairy, dark brown.

Glycymeris pilosa is a Mediterranean form with a stronger and densely hairy periostracum, considered by some authors as a distinct species, but could be an ecophenotype on more muddy bottoms.
