Acmaeidae sp
Hi all

The following shell was dredged at 400m off Durban, Natal, South Africa. My understanding is that the shells we knew as Acmaeidae in South Africa has moved to Lottiidae. None of them closely resembles the shell pictured. The closest i can get is an Australian shell called (Acmaeidae) Pectinodonta kapalae but even there the sculture is more pronounced than the shell pictured. Shell is about 3mm in size.

Picture at <a href="http://www.badongo.com/561318" target="_blank"><!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.badongo.com/561318">http://www.badongo.com/561318</a><!-- m --></a>

Any help will be appreciated.

Alwyn
