    Abstract

    The anatomy and histology of the Fijian Anadare mollusc are described. Its structure is similar to other lamellibranchs of the family Arcidae. The gender determination of live specimens was deemed impossible, due to the inaccessibility of the gonads. Peculiar white patches were found on the mantle of all specimens, suggesting a reaction to disease or pollution which warrants further investigation.
