About Lingula anatina
Lingula is a genus of brachiopods within the class Lingulata.
Lingula is known as
" (tailed mussel) in New Caledonia,
"bec de cane
" (duck bill) along some coasts in the Indian Ocean, and
" in Japan (for its likeness to the shamisen, a Japanese lute). Lingula is known to have existed possibly since the Cambrian. Like its relatives, it has two unadorned phosphatic valves and a long fleshy stalk. Lingula lives in burrows in barren sandy coastal seafloor and feeds by filtering detritus from the water. It can be detected by a short row of three openings through which it takes in water (sides) and expels it again (middle). In Thailand, there is limited Lingula anatina fishery, where it is known as hoi pak ped.
