Iridescent Smiling Coral-Clams

I saw this boring clam today for the first time - I have a ton of reference books but this is the first time I have seen a clam like this. It did not have a 'reaching' mantle so I don't think it is photosynthetic.

Wouldn't it be funny if this is a new species to science and I got to name it?

Well - with my sense of humor, the placement of the clams make it look like the coral has sprouted mouths and is singing a disco song.

So here it is - the Singing (or Iridescent) Coral Boring Clam!
