Abstract

Bivalves of the genera Megadesmus Sowerby, pyramus, Myonia, and Astartila Dana, Vacunella Waterhouse, and Pleurikodonta Runnegar are common in the Permian strata of eastern Australia and are useful for both local and regional correlation. Some of these genera occur in New Zealand, Western Australia, India, and South America, but are uncommon in the northern hemisphere and appear to have been more or less endemic to the Gondwana province. Because of their common morphological features they can be grouped into a single family - the family Pholadomyidae.
