Ruditapes largillierti, is a saltwater clam, a marine bivalve mollusc in the family Veneridae, the Venus clams. Moderately large for genus (45-65 mm long), elongate and subrectangular, thick and solid, with smooth ventral margin.[1]

It has limited use to people and the seafood industry because it resides in very deep Ocean water and contains a very common pearl.
