Rounded and Rayed mussels-
Scientific names: The Senegalese word dosin means mussel.
Other scientific names: Within the family Dosinia the
following specie are found in Swedish waters: Dosinia lincta,
that earlier has wrongfully been called Dosinia lupinus and Dosinia
exoleta. It is difficult for the novice to see the difference between
the two specie.
It is Dosinia exoleta that is pictured
on the preceding page.
More: Dosinia lincta is sometimes called the smooth Artemis
and Dosinia exoleta the rayed Artemis.
