    The shell of the adult windowpane oyster is almost circular in shape with length approximately equal to height. The shell is very compressed and the shell valves are also very flat, rounded and translucent. Inner surface of the valve is pearly. The adductor impression is at about centre. The umbo is small. Two thin ridge-like teeth diverge from the umbo making a characteristic inverted V shape angle.
