Dimyidae is a family of extremely flattened, small (<1 cm), pleurothetic, relatively rare marine bivalve molluscs in the order Ostreoida inhabiting the deeper regions of continental shelves from the Caribbean to Japan. They are sometimes called dimyarian oysters. Unlike other ostreoids, the dimyarian oysters attach themselves to a substrate via their right (rather than left) valves. They are related to the scallops and other oysters.
Genera within Dimyidae include:
- Basiliomya Bayer 1971
- Basiliomya goreaui F. M. Bayer, 1971
- Dimya roualt 1848
- Dimyella Moore 1969
- Dimyella starcki D. R. Moore, 1969
