Abstract
  • This study involved gastrochaenids, tiny, generally tropical bivalves that burrow into limestone, dead coral, and shells. They are poorly understood in the Western Atlantic region. Using both shell morphometric analysis and burrow morphology, the three presently known species (Rocellaria ligula, R. stimpsonii, and R. mowbrayi are clarified.
