Trimusculus conicus - A Common Limpet to Seek Out

Found throughout NZ but we only have 3 obs for this, two from the real far north and one from Rakiura, Stewart Island!

NZ Coastal Marine Invertebrates, Cook, Pg 464 has this to say:
Common. May not be seen unless sought
Yep - that would be about right *LOL*

So we need to find these. They live in well shaded conditions, on cave walls, under large stable boulders with plenty of wave movement.

So lets get more obs for this common limpet that is not common on this site!
