Vietnam shells - conchylinet - 05-18-2009

Hello,
Can somebody help in identifying the species below? I think they are common but I dont have any reference about seashells from Vietnam.

1. Could possibly be a piece of a Turritella or a turrid, but I lean toward Faunus ater (family Thiaridae)

2. Phalium (Semicassis) bisulcatum, probably form persimilis

3. Bursa (Bufonaria) rana

4. Meretrix lusoria (family Veneridae)

Thanks Paul,
#1 is quite solid/heavy shelled. But I agree it could be not a Turritellidae or Turrid.
