There are also molluscs confined to sand dunes and this species is found only at Ghadira and Ramla l-Hamra where it is found in huge numbers however.

Cochlicella acuta

Post by MWP admin » Thu Sep 21, 2006 10:16 am

A bit of a correction:

This species is a very common and ubiquitous Cochlicella acuta, not the rare and very localised Cochlicella conica.

I close the topic with my touch of art!

Well Cochlicella acuta should have a more pointed shell than those we found, but I certainly am not a guy to talk about shells!

Thanks for the new section :wav:
