    Status: Our only representative of the family Corbiculidae is the invasive species Corbicula fluminea (Muller, ), the asiatic clam. Although widely distributed in the US, C. fluminea is limited in the NY metro area to several lakes on Long Island, NY, and to Twin Lakes, CT, and in NJ is present in all major waterways outside the Pine Barrens.

    ABSTRACT Bivalved mollusks of the superfamily Sphaeriacea (Order Heterodonta) are represented in North America by 34 native and four apparently introduced species of the cosmopolitan freshwater family Sphaeriidae and by one introduced species (Corbioula manitensis) of the Afro- Oriental family Corbiculidae.

      The term freshwater bivalve is very inclusive and not very informative. There are representatives of at least 19 families that have at least one representative living in freshwater. This suggests at least 14 different invasions of freshwater. At least nine families have small to large radiations in the freshwater environment: Corbiculidae, Sphaeriidae, Dreissenidae, and .   Reproductive habits of four populations of Musculium securis (Bivalvia: Sphaeriidae) near Ottawa, Canada.

Types of Corbiculidae and Sphaeriidae (Mollusca: Pelecypoda) in the Museum of Comparative Zoology by Richard Irwin Johnson Download PDF EPUB FB2

The relationships of the Sphaeriidae to other families of the Veneroida are currently unknown due to the lack of a convincing sister group. Traditionally, the Sphaeriidae were combined with the Corbiculidae into the superfamily Corbiculoidea based upon shared life-history characteristics such as occurrence in freshwater, parental care in the form of larval brooding, direct.

The Corbiculidae are a family of clams in the mollusc order are known commonly as basket family name comes from the root corbus ("basket"), and was inspired by the concentric ribbing of the shells.

Clams in this family release many juveniles into the surrounding waters that have hatched inside the clams (ovoviviparous). Class: Bivalvia.

Within the Corbiculidae, the genus Corbicula, which is well‐known for its invasive and, thus, ecologically important representatives, is characterized by (i) a wide range of limnic habitats, inhabiting both brackish water and freshwater environments, and (ii) contrasting modes of reproduction, including ‘planktonic’ development via a free.

Ecology: Instream habitat: Sphaeriidae species usually occur in large numbers in many types of still or flowing permanent or semi-permanent waters from mountain bogs above the snow line to lowland rivers and freshwater pools in desert areas.

Sphaeriid mussels are found in mud, sand and gravel. Feeding ecology: Bivalvia species are filter feeders that feed by leaving the hind.

Prime was also an amateur genealogist, publishing several books on his own family history. The objective of this paper is to review the current state of our knowledge of freshwater bivalve diversity and evolution in order to identify some of the “Great Unanswered Questions” in the field.

Twenty-one bivalve families have been attributed to fresh waters, but only 16 actually live and reproduce in inland waterways. Of species of freshwater bivalves, (97%) belong to .Freshwater bivalves are one kind of freshwater molluscs, along with freshwater are bivalves which live in freshwater, as opposed to saltwater, the main habitat type for bivalves.

The majority of species of bivalve molluscs live in the sea, but in addition, a number of different families live in freshwater (and in some cases also in brackish water).Ecology: Instream habitat: Corbiculidae species inhabit both fresh and estuarine a occurs in coastal streams whereas Corbicula and Polymesoda occur in inland rivers and ula is found, often in large numbers, living in sand, in shallow, flowing rivers.

They can become a pest species in water reticulation systems, where they thrive and block pipes.
