Cool!! I just learned about the awesome eastern North American ones last summer. Didn't occur to me that Australia would have some too!

Actually I could be completely wrong if this was right on the beach -- if that is true it would have to be a marine family. I looked at this one too rapidly!

It was indeed right on the beach. It's kind of near a river outflow (the inlet-looking thing north of here on the map), but not right at the mouth or anything.

A psamobiid bivalve that looks a lot like a dull tellin. Very common on metropolitan Adelaide beaches. BTW Australia does have a freshwater mussel fauna as well.
