Squamosa Clam...needs positive ID

Just got a new Clam from my LFS. They are calling it a Squamosa, but i don't think thats what it is.

If anybody out there knows for sure if this is a Squamosa or whatever it is, please let me know.

All replys are much appreciated! Thanks!

It is a Tridachna derasa, you can tell by the smooth shell. Squamosas have very large scutes on their shells.
