Description

Found among wrack-line after storms.
While washing out the maggots that were feasting on the decaying remnants of the animal, the operculum popped out still fully intact.
One of the most stunning specimens in my collection, as it is in virtually flawless condition and exhibits the characteristic rusty overlay of the region it was collected.
