Hello everybody!

I found 4 vary-patterned bivalves just like the one in the photo at the Ebro delta, 13-8-2011. Is it Tappes Philippinarum? It is 44mm.

Thanks,

Emma.

It certainly looks like one. I am not sure if it has been introduced to Spain but it seems to be everywhere else so why not?  Big Grin I get similar forms in the Thames estuary here.
Thanks again Dave!!

Thanks for the confirmation Poseidon!
