I think this is the invasive freshwater clam, which I was surprised to find on an exposed beach. I've not seen these clams in the nearby estuary but I imagine that's where this originated. Does this ID look correct, @susanhewitt?

I am not sure which species this is.

I do not know if Tellina bodegensis starts out this shape and then becomes much more elongated?

Description from Wikipedia

Bivalvia is a class of marine and freshwater molluscs with laterally compressed bodies enclosed by a shell in two hinged parts. Bivalves include clams, oysters, mussels, scallops, and numerous other families of shells. The majority are filter feeders and have no head or radula. The gills have evolved into ctenidia, specialised organs for feeding and breathing. Most bivalves bury themselves in sediment on the seabed, where they are safe from predation. Others lie on the sea...
