Hello again!

My classification antics are on-going, and I am slowly reducing the  content of my unknown shells box. Here are some more unknown shells:

1. From Vietnam, purchased with Meretrix lyrata from a local supermarket frozen food counter:

2. Unknown small conus:

3. Unknown:

I am grateful for any help, as always.
Can't comment on the bivalve(not my area of expertise at all!) but the cone looks to me like Conus furvus and the other shell is Nerita albicilla.
The bivalve looks indeed like a Meretrix. I'm not an expert in Meretrix species, but Meretrix lyrata could be correct.
Thanks! On the bivalve I'm going with Meretrix sp., maybe lusoria. As I said they were farmed with Meretrix lyrata.
Meretrix meretrix is a good possibility for the two patterned specimens. The lower specimen could be a small M. lyrata.
