Mystery Fossil



I found your website and hope you can help me identify some shell fossils I found. They come from a place called Fossil Beach on Kodik Island, Alaska. The geologic maps I've looked at puts them in the Eocene, but I can't seem to find anything exactly like them on line, and would love some more information. I've attached pictures. Thank you very much for your help.
