pholadomya sounds new..is it?
It's the weird gastropod (unless it's a bivalve, im just too lazy to make sure) that doesnt look like the other ones in its group.

New to fossils question:
Will we ever be responsible to know species names (aka anything more than specified on the list)? Like if at a station they give me a sponge and ask for the species as well as genus?

Well, the rules say you shouldn't, but the rules aren't the ones writing the test. So no, but don't freak out if they do. :)
SO stressed!

Okay thanks. What have you guys put in your past binder? I'm starting with just bulking all the info. But are there specifics I may want to extract? For example: how the genus reproduces, eats, etc.

umm...you might want to try classification, preservation (what kind of stone it is found in), mode of life, the environment in which it thrived, mineral and organic components (of the shell/skeleton), when it thrived, and distribution (where in the world it was found). also maybe physical characteristics and things like that...maybe behavior too...

I'm working on arthropods right now, the first item in this section is trilobites and then there are 4 genus from there. Does anyone know if I need to be able to identify other trilobites or just those genus? (this question started to sound dumb while I was typing...oh well).

*edit* has anyone ever had to identify specific crustaceans or insects? or simply know they were insects/crustaceans?

You only need to know those 4 trilobites. They might give you a trilobite not on the list, but in that case, youd only have to know that it is a trilobite, not what genus it is.

And you dont need to identify specific insects or crustaceans, though honestly, I've NEVER seen them ask about insects or crustaceans, except when asking about mode of preservation (for insects in amber).
