Five mystery venuses. Venii?
<a href="" target="_blank"><!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m --></a>

Thank you for all your help so far. Here's five what i think are venus shells. I've had some luck with the internet and books figuring out some, but these leave me confused.
Thanks again,

Top left looks like Mercenaria mercenaria, middle looks like Codakia tigerina, bottom right looks to be Venus casina. Can't help with the others I am afraid.

Bottom left looks like Spisula solida. Bottom right looks like Venus verrucosa for me.

You should post a picture showing the inner sides of the valves.

Bottom left looks like Bassina yatei and upper right looks like Chione stutchburyi, but I can't be sure without a closer look and preferably a look at the interiors.  Does the upper right shell have purple on the interior?
