Please help with identification of this shell. I don t have better image, hope it is real one, not two shells together.
Anyway, knows anybody the name?

Hi peter,

Welcome to the site. I wish the picture was a little better, but still I'm quite sure this is Glossus humanus (Linne., 1758), commonly known as the Oxheart Clam. It is a European species, fairly common from Norway south to the Mediterranean. A synonym often seen in older books is Isocardia cor. Compare your shell to this picture:

hi Paul,
I congratulate on your knowledge,
I think it is exactly that one. Yesterday I did n´t find any info about, so I came here. Your help is very valued.
Thanks from Prague, Czech.Rep.
