Bairdia, copyright Moorea Biocode.

Belongs within: Bairdiidae.

Bairdia is a genus of ostracods with a fossil record extending from the Ordovician to the present day. As such, it is the longest-surviving recognised genus of ostracods and probably represents the only lineage of Bairdiidae to survive from the Palaeozoic into the Mesozoic (Benson et al. 1961).

Characters (from Benson et al. 1961): Carapace mostly elongate fusiform in lateral view, with broadly arched dorsum that becomes concave terminally, especially at the rear; venter centrally straight but curved upward terminally so that extremities are nearly at mid-height, anterior end generally higher and better rounded than posterior, which is generally acuminate; in dorsal view, lateral outlines symmetrically convex and extremities acuminate; surface of valves smooth, punctate, or rarely with protuberances; left valve larger than right valve, mostly overreaching it around entire margin and overlapping it, especially ventrally, around contact margin. Short ridge-and-groove hingement commonly marked by prominent cardinal angles, especially in right valve; contact margins complex, with wide duplicature, vestibule, and associated structures; adductor-muscle scar pattern of several discrete spots.
