Valves of Loripes lucinalis, from here.

Belongs within: Heterodonta.
Contains: Codakia, Lucina.

The Lucinidae are a family of cockle-like bivalves most noted for their symbiotic association with chemosynthetic bacteria that live within their gill filaments. They have a fossil record extending back to the Silurian, but are poorly known prior to the Cenozoic (Bretsky 1971).

Characters (from Cox et al. 1969): subcircular to ovate or trapezoidal in outline, shell commonly thickened, concentric sculpture tending to be irregular, strong ribs alternating with weaker ones, radial ribs (if present) stronger laterally; lunule more or less asymmetrical. Hinge with two cardinals, anterior right covered in some, lateral laminae commonly duplicate in LV; ligament marginal to inframarginal, without separated resilium; shell internally more or less punctate or grooved; anterior adductor scar with ventral extension separate from pallial line, forming moderately to strongly divergent or elongate digitation. Margin crenate or smooth.
