I appreciate the info, I'm not trying to be argumentative on the ID by requesting reasons, just trying to grow my own knowledge as I would like to successfully keep clams and be able to identify them.
if you want to read up on clams more and understand them better, i would highly recommend these 2 books :

Giant Clams by Daniel Knop
Giant Clams in the Sea and the Aquarium by James Fatheree

they are great reads and provide a great source of information about clams. I bought my copies used from Amazon (they may actually be out of print).
