Yes, Veneridae, a species of Tapes.  There are so many of them that look so similar, and so much synonymy in names, I can't name the species with certainty.

Indeed, it is a Venus-species for sure. It looks like a Tawera lagopus...

Thank you Bart for reply !

Tawera lagopus location is South Australia & Tasmania,
and mine dont have granulate margin.
I dont think it is the right ID.
