Abstract
    This work consists of a systematic catalogue and primary bibliography of the living Bivalvia of the eastern Pacific Ocean from Bering Strait, Alaska (66°N) to Cape Horn, Tierra del Fuego (60°S). 1308 species from the high intertidal zone to deep waters extending approximately two thousand kilometers offshore are included, representing the total described fauna. Synonymies for each species and its distribution updated from the recent literature and museum and private collections, are given. Also presented are the thermal range and fossil occurrence in the region, abstracted from the literature and collections. The bibliography lists sources of primary descriptions and replacement names at the specific level only. New species are not proposed, though six replacement names and various changes of suprageneric categories are suggested.The following nomenclatural changes are proposed: Anadara auricula nom. novo pro Arca auriculato Sowerby, 1833 not Lamarck; Modiolus kurilensis nom. nov. pro Volsella difficilis Kuroda and Habe 1950 not Deshayes; Pecten berryi nom. nov. pro Pecten lunaris Berry 1963 not Romer; Petricola olssoni nom. nov. pro Petricola peruviana Olsson, 1961 not Jay; Semele clydosa nom. novo pro Amphidesma punctatum Sowerby 1833 not Say; Astartacea superfamily nom. transl.; Axinopsidinae subfamily nov.; Borniinae subfamily nov.; Crassatellacea superfamily emend.; Eryciniinae subfamily nom. transl.; Glycymeridacea superfamily nov.; Kelliinae subfamily nov.; Lasaeinae subfamily nom. transl.; Montacutinae subfamily nom. transl.; Mysellinae subfamily nov.; Orobitellinae subfamily nov.; Thecodontinae subfamily nov.; Thraciacea superfamily nom. transl.; Thyasirinae subfamily nov.
