Description

How about this striated species of Lamp shell, and no baby at 35mm, in fact huge [highlighted specimen], fossicked from Manawa-kapakapa [spelling ?] south end of D'Urville Is.

Does not appear to be same sp as the smoothe shelled Common Red Lamp Shell [Magasella sanguinea] but may be a variation on it. Both this, and the Common Red Lamp Shell were found same beach or Ohana Bay over peninsula in Current Basin. [Next posting]

Description

Common name. Black Lamp Shell

aka Hemithyris nigricans
was at one stage Tegulorhynchia nigricans. Current status Notosaria??

Much scarcer than the two red species of lamp shells.

Reportedly only found south of Bank's Peninsula. This one swam 200km to get to D'urville Is or more likely the known range is further North than officially reported.

Description from Wikipedia

Brachiopods, phylum Brachiopoda, are marine animals that have hard "valves" (shells) on the upper and lower surfaces, unlike the left and right arrangement in bivalve molluscs. Brachiopod valves are hinged at the rear end, while the front can be opened for feeding or closed for protection. Two major groups are recognized, articulate and inarticulate. Articulate brachiopods have toothed hinges and simple opening and closing muscles, while inarticulate brachiopods have untoothed hinges and a more complex system...
