Not the best pics as the water was a bit choppy. They have now reached the Houhora Harbour. Quite a few wandering around below low tide in the sand.

Not completely sure about this one which was observed at extreme low tide under a rock. It measured only about 10-12mm in length, so if it is P. imperialis, its only a baby. All other ones I’ve ever seen have been at least 40mm+

Description

An old photo taken back in 1993. Approx 15-20m deep, off the Cavalli Islands, Northland. Not a good photo, as I was using an old camera without a viewfinder for macro work - hence the framing was a bit off.

Washed up on the tide line. Probably reevei, but has a very low spire compared to the other shells I’ve seen lately. May be A. nomotoi?
