Description

PIles of empty shells found along shores; many were extremely eroded and thin. Since no living ones were found, observation of lures/syphons was not possible. Were assigned to L.siliquoidea due to the locality where they were found. However, considering the difficulty to differentiate siliquoidea from radiata by using solely the characteristics of shells, it could as well be L. radiata.
