In both cases, a well-developed wood-storing cecum, thought to be critical to wood digestion in other Teredinidae, is not evident.

In 1973 Popham and Dixon (Popham and Dickson, 1973) demonstrated the presence of endosymbiotic bacteria in the gills of wood-boring bivalves of the family Teredinidae, commonly known as shipworms.
The ctenidia (gills) of Xylophagainae, like those of the Teredinidae, are formed by a single (outer) demibranch on either side of the visceral mass [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 1 OMITTED].
The majority of about 89 species reported in the class Bivalvia, exception for Pectinidae and Teredinidae
, had mostly metacentric and submetacentric chromosomes.
