Despite the fact that the few references I've checked so far say this taxon is tropical, it's the best match.Nothing ventured...??!!??
I'll continue adding photos showing every detail of this very large (19 cm by 14 cm wide) ,solid and heavy clam valve that I found beachcombing this afternoon. Sea was slowly settling (following a mild to moderate NW gale typical of the season and accompanied by minimal rainfall locally) but the section of beach it washed up on has the steepest profile of this North Normanville Beach (between jetty and Carrickalinga Creek).So there were still quite big dumper waves crashing ashore at that point and more than a few sizeable beached loose rocks on what used to be a clean sandy beach. The rocks are flattish chunks of the calcrete and conglomerate inshore substrate that have broken off the bottom where seagrass and shellfish beds historically maintained a more gentle intertidal beach profile. There is now a perrenial scarp where there once was a healthy blue line (seagrass meadows meeting sandy intertidal zone). But back to the suggested ID: I have never seen or heard of anything like this being found in S.A., whether by beachcomber, diver or trawler, but it's very possible that similar 'sub fossil ' valves have been recorded in the region as a legacy of natural climatic cycles ,those periods of time when subtropical climate led to persistence of relict warm water species in our gulfs,itself a well documented feature of this region.

Various views of tuna in eco-tourism pen ,some include dive buddy for size comparison.
[Same date and dive(s) as previous observation,however statistically the odds are that these images do not include that lone fish,because there were about 30 or so Southern Bluefin Tuna zooming about in the very spacious and deep-bottomed pen]

(Please also read my description for the previous submission as it applies equally to this one.)

Only the one seen,just as I was about to exit at end of a ~90 minute ultra shallow inter-tidal 'swalkel' (=fin-less snorkel, just wetsuit booties plus usual minimalist clobber for quick and easy inshore viewing of marine life). It seemed friendlier than most I've seen (in daylight they usually stay hidden under rocks and shells,and this was early afternoon, despite camera's time being set incorrectly,so it's about 7 hours ahead of real local time).It lingered,even posed side-on for imaging,and did little return circuits for up to ~30 seconds in all.So I wonder if it was being cleaned by one of the many Rock-pool Shrimps that I also saw within close proximity.Because there was only light cloud cover and depth was only ~30 cm, the shrimps were all so transparent that despite wearing my optical prescription face-mask I couldn't really be sure what the nearest ones were doing.But,I'm adding this obs to MLSSA's S.A. marine cleaning critters project as a precaution :-)

First image is of one of several such fish seen this tide-pool snorkel. 2nd is a poor cropped image of a pair of brown-red adults[with neither being in full view;indeed only the head of the second fish(?perhaps female) is visible and because it touches the first one's(?male's) head, most viewers would assume there's only a single Shore Eel.I was there,and can assure viewers there are 2 brown-red heads,for the record!]
