From editor or global species database
Classification Species of the Recent genus Bathycorbis have been claimed as living representatives of the Mactromyidae (otherwise with no post-Cretaceous records) on the basis of supposed similarities of hinge teeth. However, the affinities of these small (c. 5 mm) offshore bivalves from Australia, known only from shells, are uncertain (Taylor & Glover 2006). [details]
