Galeommatidae is a family of small and very small saltwater clams, marine bivalve molluscs in the order Galeommatida.
The mantle sometimes covers the entire valves. When submerged, little finger-like structures appear from the mantle. Some have a wide 'foot' created from fused mantle edges. The foot holds on to a hard surface and is able to move around by pushing using their muscular foot.
