The record of Cambrian bivalved organisms that have been placed in the Mollusca includes undoubted pelecypods and other bivalved shells. This record is reviewed herein. Additional topotype material of Delgado's (1904, Communicacoes da Commissao do Servico Geologico de Portugal 5:307-374) Lower Cambrian specimens from Portugal shows that they are distorted brachiopods. Restudy of Zhang's (1980a, Bulletin Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences, Series 8, 1:1-19; 1980b, 26th International Geological Congress 4:121-129) type specimens from the Lower Cambrian of China shows that most of them are also brachiopods. New specimens of Tuarangia MacKinnon indicate that this genus is a Middle-Upper Cambrian pelecypod.
