I showed your pictures to Roger Portell (Invertebrate collections manager here at the Florida Museum of Natural History).
He told me “Two taxa present. Most are Timoclea (Veneridae) and one valve of an ark (Arcidae).”, at least in the very last image you sent. I believe the ark shell is the one in the top left corner.
You also seem to have at least three that were preyed upon by gastropods (snails). These would be the ones that have the very circular holes in them from the snails boring into the clam shell.
Thanks for sharing! Looking forward to seeing anything else you’ve got.
