English translation:hen clam
Explanation:
In italiano non ho trovato "palorda" ma sembra che sia un nome di origine francese e dalla figura trovata sembra una "vongola"


Une palourde, coquillage bivalve qui se cache dans le sable, vous pouvez en voir ici qu'une demi coquille ramassée dans la mer et la palourde ?
...sans doute dégustée par une pieuvre !
