Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorClassification An unexpected but apparently well supported finding in Campbell (2002: Denver Annual Meeting of G.S.A., paper 236-4), Giribet & Wheeler (2003) and Dreyer et al. (2003) is that Astartidae and Carditidae are sister-groups to the remaining Heterodonta, may derive from fossil Eodon and may form together a clade. This has been given so much support in subsequent, independent studies (e.g. Bieler & Mikkelsen, 2006; Taylor et al., 2007: Zoologica Scripta 36, 587-606). [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSpelling Spelled Carditida in Bieler, Carter & Coan (2010) but the ending -oida here maintained because in general use fro bivalve orders. [details]
