Looks like a Gafrarium.  Close to Gafrarium menkei.

                                            " Gafrarium menkei "  fits perfect.

                                                          great  ;D

                                                      Thank you PAUL

I think this is a Venus-species: Gafrarium tumidum (I forgot the authour...)

Hi Bart,

Thank you for reply.

WoRMS dont accept  " Gafrarium tumidum "

              <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.marinespecies.org/aphia.php?p=taxdetails&id=208528">http://www.marinespecies.org/aphia.php? ... &id=208528</a><!-- m -->

              Accept      " Gafrarium pectinatum "
                  And      " Gafrarium menkei "    dont exist at this register.

I will enter them as:  " Gafrarium pectinatum " (Linnaeus, 1758)

              Thank you

To me, it is also Grafarium menkei.
