This little guy came to me attached to a torch coral's skeleton, and I was wondering if anyone can help with an ID? He is still quite small, from hinge to mantle it's about 1/4". He's been in my tank for about 3 months and I think he has grown a tiny bit but my eyes might be fooling me.

Looks to be a Rock Scallop, either Hinnites or Spondylus species.
