Mussels  (Subclass Pteriomorphia)

"Mussel" is a loose and inaccurate term, but it has historically been applied to those families of clams where the shell is longer than it is wide, being wedge-shaped or asymmetrical-looking, and where the external color of the shell is dark blue or brown, as opposed to the more globular lighter-colored families of bivalves. They also have separate male and female individuals.

Marine mussel species live in intertidal and subtidal areas along coastlines worldwide, usually clumped together and attached to rocks or other solid structure. Freshwater mussel species inhabit lakes, ponds, rivers, creeks, canals, and similar habitats and are taxonomically not closely related to marine Mussels.
