Byssus threads

The threads must be byssus threads (mussel, cockles etc also have them).But most Donax v. shells you find don't have them & I was unable to find any mention in texts or on the net; & no photos either in texts/ internet sites, but (about a yr back) in google images but many pages down) I found one at conchology.be, (belgian), twice as bushy & it has a whole page of Donax v. for sale (2 euros), several even more bushy. Now (at least on my google images) the bushy donax is on 1st page. Have since fd a 2nd D. v with slighter bush.
