The revision of Lower Paleocene fossils identified as Succinodon putzeri by Huene (1941) showed that they represent remains of boring bivalves of the suborder Pholadina. The structure of tubes and the marine origin of rocks in
which they occur make possible to assign them to Kuphus Guettard 1770.

Key words: Teredinidae, Bivalvia, Montian.
