Scallop from Mauritius - sdsheller - 05-23-2014

Here is one more specimen from Mauritius. Can't seem to find a good match on-line. Help with ID would be much appreciated!

Appears to be Chlamys (Brachtechlamys) vexillum, extremely variable in color and markings.
There are some specimens similar to yours on this page. There are many other color forms on the preceding and following pages.
