In this study, we found Obovaria jacksoniana and Villosa arkansasensis are synonomous. We suggest that morphological differences between the two species are caused by ecophenotypic plasticity, where V. arkansasensis is the upstream morphotype and O. jacksoniana is the downstream morphotype of a single species.
