Description. Shell small, fragile, up to c. 3 mm high, hyaline or opaque, valves dissimilar in shape, size and sculpture; prodissoconch of both valves similar, c. 245 µm in width, 135 µm in height (Dijkstra, 1995b: figs 87–88; Figs 21C, 23A), evenly and weakly convex, sculptured with many low, narrow, weakly defined radial ridgelets; contrasting strongly with that of Cyclochlamys nepeanensis   in sculpture and in lack of central projection on left valve.

Left valve slightly larger and more convex than right valve, smooth except for a few minute commarginal growth lines (typical var.) or with more prominent commarginal lirae ( var. obliqua   ); auricles almost equal, with some commarginal lines. Outer ligament insertion with small holes near resilifer (Dijkstra, 1995b: fig. 89).

Right valve smooth apart from faint hexagonal microsculpture (Dijkstra, 1995b: fig. 90). Anterior auricle with closely spaced commarginal lamellae. Byssal notch well developed.

Habitat. Living in the littoral zone (amongst algae) and in the bathyal zone amongst rubble on soft sediment (sand and mud).

Distribution. New Caledonia, 305–610 m (Dijkstra, 1995b); Fiji, 135–151 m (Dijkstra & Maestrati, 2008). Present material from Papua New Guinea (beached, dead) and Australia (northeastern Queensland southwards to New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania, and westwards to South Australia and Western Australia up to Broome) (3–1000 m, alive).

Remarks. Chlamydella favus   is variable in shape (almost circular to posteriorly oblique) and extremely variable in sculpture on the left valve (almost smooth to prominent commarginal, weak radial or reticulate sculpture, or intermediate variations). The specific epithet “favus” is an indeclinable noun (Latin, honeycomb), selected by Hedley (1902: 306) because of the hexagonal structure of the surface of the right valve.
