Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription A thin, fragile elongated shell up to 65 mm long. The outside of the shell is covered with ribs radiating from the top that are crossed by the growth lines. The ribs in the front part under the top bear clear squamous projections used to ‘bore’ through the substrate. The colour is lime white or yellowish white; older specimens are coloured brownish yellow. Bores in hard clay, limestone and solid mud as well as in pieces of peat and wood. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution In both periods Petricola pholadiformis could only be found in the coastal zone, with a clear preference for the eastern coastal zone. Although the distribution of the species was limited, high densities were observed locally: up to 500 ind./m2 in the 1976-1986 period and up to 1,000 ind./m2 in the 1994-2001 period. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription A thin, fragile elongated shell up to 65 mm long. The outside of the shell is covered with ribs radiating from the top that are crossed by the growth lines. The ribs in the front part under the top bear clear squamous projections used to ‘bore’ through the substrate. The colour is lime white or yellowish white; older specimens are coloured brownish yellow. Bores in hard clay, limestone and solid mud as well as in pieces of peat and wood. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution In both periods Petricola pholadiformis could only be found in the coastal zone, with a clear preference for the eastern coastal zone. Although the distribution of the species was limited, high densities were observed locally: up to 500 ind./m2 in the 1976-1986 period and up to 1,000 ind./m2 in the 1994-2001 period. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Petricola pholadiformis is only found in fine sediments with a median grain size < 250 μm. In sediments with a median grain size of 100-150 μm a relative occurrence of 50% is even noted. The mud content seems less decisive for the habitat preference; however, the species does not occur in sediments without mud and the relative occurrence increases as the mud content of the sediment increases. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editoralien species The natural distribution area of the false angelwing Petricola pholadiformis was limited to the east coast of North America, but was brought to Europe (England) around 1890 together with the transport of the eastern oyster Crassostrea virginica. The planktonic larvae of the false angelwing could subsequently reach the rest of Europe by hitchhiking on the sea currents. The species was first observed in Belgian waters at Nieuwpoort in 1899. Now, the false angelwing mainly lives around our east and middle coast. This bivalve drills passageways in peat blocks, wood, hard clay and limestone. Living individuals are often found in washed ashore peat blocks. Empty shells are frequently found on our beaches. [details]
