Two specimens of Pseudohinnites levii Dijkstra, 1989, hitherto known only from valves, are described, including an account of the gross morphology. It is concluded that P. levii has a well- developed capacity for swimming. It is a micropredator, feeding on minute crustaceans, and larval development is probably lecithotropic with a short, if any, pelagic stage. Morphological characters are compared with those of the representatives of Propeamussiidae and Pectinidae.
