I got some of these years back from a scallop dump where
the boats were working off Port Canaveral. I first thought they were
E. rupicola but now the more I look at them they just don't match
the rupicola. I sent some to Weil & Brown with some others for ID.
They came back as ID rupicola. Well I still can't see this. Anyone else
seen or collected these?
Shell pictured is 22.3mm
