Dear David,
Thank you very much. (Great, it's a new species in my collection.)
Best regards,
Mark

You are welcome Mark. habitat is sandy areas, usually in shallow water. it live buried during the day time and is a common shell in most localities. except in French Polynesia, where it can be rarely found much deeper during night dives about 25-30m.... but still on sand. cheers DAVID
