Observed egg cases washed up on the beach.
Please correct if misidentified.
This snail was discovered at low tide out at Cattle Point. It was in the lower intertidal zone attached to rock. It was about a inch long and half inch wide and had it a large smooth shell.
A group of 1" very smooth Nucella lamellosa (Wrinkled Dogwinkle aka Purple) were clustered under a rock at low tide. Sometimes I see orange ones, but white are more common.
These two Nucella lamellosa (Wrinkled Dogwinkles aka Purples) were less eroded than most. Each was about 2" long, and found during the low tide on rocks covered in Ulva.
I loved turning over a rock at low tide and finding this perfect pyramid of Nucella lamellosa (Wrinkled Dogwinkles aka Wrinkled Purples).
