Mediterranean fissurella
Hello again!

Can anybody give me the name of these Mediterranean fissurella? I find them a very difficult species to classify. I found them on a beach in Spain, in the Tarragona area a few years ago.

Thanks for all your help!!

Best wishes, Emma.

I'd say Fissurella nubecula, based on the near-central position of the hole.  Most of the other Mediterranean Fissurellidae have the hole located farther anterior.
