Abra nitida, from the National Museum of Wales.

Belongs within: Heterodonta.
Contains: Semele, Tellina, Macoma.

The Tellinoidea are a group of infaunal bivalves that first appeared in the Upper Triassic (Cox et al. 1969). With their elongate, mobile siphons, tellinoids tend to burrow relatively deep within the sediment, using the siphons to pick up food particles from the sediment surface. The Tellinidae have more or less elongate shells with unequal valves and an external ligament (Cox et al. 1969).

Characters (from Cox et al. 1969): Shells mostly inequilateral with external ligament or, if sunken, in pit on hinge plate, not in chondrophore; cardinal hinge teeth two in either valve, tending to be bifid, lateral teeth well developed in most families; adductor muscle scars connected by pallial line with distinct sinus. Animal with two elongate siphons that are not fused.
