Hi Deborah, it is a Spondylus but they are notoriously difficult to identify to species level. At first glance it could be<i> Spondylus barbatus</i> from the Philippines. What size is it?

It looks a lot like some forms of Spondylus americanus, from Florida and the Caribbean, and I'm guessing it is pretty large?  Maybe 5 inches or more?  If so I'm pretty sure it is Spondylus americanus.
