Re; Clam shell snail

 Two more possibilities: Perhaps it really is a clam. The first stage in life of a freshwater clam is parasitic. In our area you often see minnows in the spring covered with what looks like black "ick". The fish would have to have shared water with spawning clams since it's not contageous or that harmful. Or, it could be Cypris. Descriptions often refer to Cypris as clamlike in appearance, though not at all related to a clam since it's a crustacean.
