Several bivalve (e.g., Mytillidae, Thyrasiridae, Solemyidae, and Vesicomyidae) and gastropod families (e.g., Lepetodrilidae and Provannidae) have independently evolved associations with sulfide-oxidizing or methanotrophic [gamma]-Proteobacteria that live within or on gill tissues (DeChaine and Cavanaugh, 2005; Cavanaugh et al., 2006; Duperron et al., 2008b).

In many respects, the gill of Xylophaga closely resembles the symbiont-containing gills of other bivalves including the Lucinidae, Vesicomyidae, Modiolinae, and Solemyidae (Distel and Felbeck, 1987; Fisher 1990; Frenkiel et al., 1996; Gros et al., 1996).
Symbioses with intracellular carbon-fixing bacteria, believed to be dependent on bacteriocyte hemoglobin, have heretofore been described only in clams of the families Solemyidae, Lucinidae, and Vesicomyidae and in a few mussels, Mytilidae, restricted to the genus Bathy-modiolus (4).
