Comments:
I found this on a muddy intertidal zone, in the middle of a long estuary. A few marinas were nearby, so the bivalve may have been a species found in deep water, brought up by fishermen. Another possibility is that it was a freshwater species in the river. I believe it was a mussel, though it may have been a clam.

it might be a propeller Clam (saltwater), or it might be one of the many freshwater clams in our rivers.
