The lower valve is commonly convex, if partly buried in life position, and nearly flat, if lying at the substratum surface. Most swimming species have thin shells. Pectinids with a free-living adult stage differ from those with a byssally attached adult stage in their high degree of auricle symmetry and large umbonal angle. Most mollusks have well-developed nervous systems with large brains and sense organs. Most of these animals have a closed digestive system with only one opening, and a true coelom. All animals of the phylum Mollusca have bilateral symmetry. Three major classes make up the phylum Mollusca.
