First report of the freshwater mussel Mytilopsis leucophaeata (Family Dreissenidae) in Trinidad W.I. and a new locality record of the native Anodontites crispata (Family Unionidae)
Freshwater mussels have been documented within Trinidad since the 1800s (Guppy 1866) with two species of the Unionidae family; Anadontitis crispata (Bruguiere 1792) and Mycetopoda sp. identified. In this note we record a new location for A. crispata and a new species record Mytilopsis leucophaeata (Conrad 1831) for Trinidad.
