Description

In beach drift in gravel and shell fragments at low tide. First one of this species for me...! Very fresh, possibly washed up because of the Tsunami.  Found when I was digging the gravel to find some shells. Very rare to see them in Auckland. There are also some records of this species in Rodney, mainly by diving.
I will upload a photo of this specimen later.
