Nomenclature This class of molluscs probably holds a record of alternative names which have been applied to it. Among these Pelecypoda Goldfuss, 1820 and Lamellibranchiata de Blainville, 1816 have been quite extensively used in XXth century literature but Conchifera Lamarck, 1818 [not to be confused with Conchifera Gegenbaur, 1878, coined for a totally different concept of a taxon uniting all shelled molluscs except Polyplacophora] and Acephala Cuvier, 1795 also appear in the XIXth century literature.
Although "Bivalvia" is a valid name for the class and has gained general acceptance following the Treatise on Invertebrate Palaeontology (Cox in Moore, 1969), some would prefer "Pelecypoda", on the grounds that other animal groups exist with bivalved shells (e.g. Brachiopoda, Ostracoda and some Gastropoda), that some animals attributed to Bivalvia (e.g. Rostroconchia) have non-bivalved shells, and that the name is consonant with other molluscan classes.  [details]
