Taxonomy Recent research has shown that living members of the genus Hiatella are genetically diverse. The nestling habitat of this genus results in an extremely variable shell morphology. That nestling can occur among epibionts on boats and floating debris suggests that transport of some genetic entities has occurred for centuries. It may thus be difficult or impossible to correlate shell morphologies with genetic entities, particularly with the many nominal species described since 1758 based solely on shells. An entirely new classification may be needed for this difficult genus, and some authors are now using letters, such as "Hiatella sp. J" to indicate genetic entities. [details]
