Saddle Oyster, lower valves

The Common Saddle Oyster, Anomia ephippium has a thin, flat lower valve with a conspicuous saddle-shaped opening at the top. These lower valves are also called Jingle Shells, perhaps because of the musical, tinkling sound they make when shaken together. Photograph ©James Prineas, 2003
