A brown polished mollusc

Post by MWP admin » Mon Sep 24, 2007 1:34 pm

I have seen this empty shell at Dwejra. It was in shallow water near the coast, and photographed it upwaters. It was highly polished and very beautiful, about 2-3cm long.

Would like to know the species for putting on the website.
