OSTREOIDEA is a taxonomic superfamily of bivalve marine mollusc , sometimes simply identified as oysters , containing two families. The ostreoids are characterized in part by the presence of a well developed axial rod . Anal flaps are known to exist within the family Ostreidae
Ostreidae
but not within the more-primitive Gryphaeidae
Gryphaeidae
. The scar from the adductor muscle is simple, with a single, central scar. In the majority, the right valve is less convex than the left.
