Abstract

OF the several species of wedge clams of the family Donacidce that occur on
the east and west coasts of India in the surf-beaten sands, Donax scortum
to some and Donax cuneatus to a very large extent are valued as food by
many people. In the Palk Bay, ail along the beach from Pillaimadam shore
<Long. 79° 5' and Lat. 9° 17') to Attankarai (Long. 79° 0' and Lat. 9° 21'), a
distance of about seven miles, the receding tides reveal Donax cuneatus in
abundance.
