Fluvana Oysters

Here are a sampling of the oysters(?) I found in Fluvana last year. Any help identifying them would be appreciated but would especially appreciate direction to good research materials to help me identify the rest of them, provided they are not all variations of the same type.

@abyssunder is likely correct.  This oyster is now known as Ceratostreon texanum (Roemer).

Yes, JohnJ is correct.That's the new name, also, the other from plate 30 Exogyra texana weatherfordensis Cragin is now Ceratostreon weatherfordensis, if I'm not wrong.
