Excerpt from West American Cenozoic Pholadidae: Mollusca; Bivalvia The Pholadidae are a highly specialized family of Bivalvia that have adapted to mechanically excavating burrows in mud, soft rock, coral, shell, and wood. The Cenozoic fossil record of this family in western North America is meager. And, partly because of the previous lack of a sound classification for the Recent species, they have long been misinterpreted in the fossil record.
