In the report "Rostroconchia: A new class of bivalved mollusks" by J. Pojeta, Jr., et al. (21 July, p. 264), the second sentence in the second paragraph on page 264 should read "As in other motile bivalved animals in which the midsagittal plane passes between the valves, the fused junction (hinge) of the valves is regarded as dorsal and the margin opposite the hinge ventral."
