    The Indian backwater oyster is an irregularly shaped oyster with straight shells. The shell has a deep left valve and concave right valve. The hinge which joins the shells is narrow and long. The animal has a right and left mantle lobe which encloses the mantle cavity which in turn encloses the rest of the organs.
