    Man don't joke it's spreading rapidly over the mantle ? Looks like it's irritating the tissue ......

    Is it hard or soft?
    If it's irritating your com then you should try and scrape it off

    Colonial Tunicates? Just sort of looks the same, I dont really know.

    Harmless in a general sense, but not harmless if they irritate the clam's mantle (as they appear to be doing in the picture).
