They looks like Corbula genus.

thanks Pierre & Paul for your help, i google the specie name you gave and here's what i found.

I think it is Corbula modesta (Reeve,1843) cause the locality,size and features are more accurate in this specie,... but because of your great info i know now what it is 8).


EDIT :  Oooops!!.... sorry Paul you are correct on Corbula taitensis.... modestum is unaccepted :o
