Bathymodiolus platifrons, described by Hashimoto and Okutani in 1994, is a deep-sea mussel that is common in hydrothermal vents and methane seeps in the Western Pacific Ocean.[2][3][4]

Symbiosis

Bathymodiolus platifrons harbours methane-oxidizing bacteria in its gill, which help to transfer methane into material and energy to help it to thrive in such environments.[5]
