Rudist bivalves are a morphologically unique group of marine clams that lived from the Jurassic through the Cretaceous Period. This site supplies a brief introduction to the evolution, morphology and palaeoecology of rudist bivalves, including photos and illustrations of characteristic fossils. Outcrop photographs of selected rudist localities are provided with detailed location information and relevant references for each locale.
