AbstractA bsd consisting of a liTge quantity of semifossdlised shells of window pane
oyster Placenta placenta (Linn.) was discove,red accidently in a paddy field by the
side of the river Mandovi '.n Goa. Subsequent investigations lead to the conclusion
that there was a flourishing population of window pane oyster in this rrea prior
to the 16th century, and that this rich population perished subsequently as a result
of indiscriminate intervention by way of reclamation. This population is compared
with that which exiists ft present in the Zuari estuary of Goa. Attempts are also
m de to compare the incidence and distribution of .boring sponges among the
window pane oyster, both ancient and extant.
