Abstract

REFERRING to the fact mentioned in Mr. Darwin's letter, that mussels are sometimes brought up on the point of a hook, it is common, in shell collections, to find “Heart Cockles” (Isocardia cor), which look exactly as if they had been drilled each with a small hole, centred at some point in the opposed edges of the two valves.
