Australia (WA) › Albany

Aus 25 m Tiefe bei SW Albany getaucht, von erfahrenem Sportaucher mit Genehmigung der Naturschutzbehörden als Lebedfund eingebracht. Ein Exemplar von absoluter und selten gesehener Perfektion, phantastisch die gleichmäßig glänzende Oberfläche und wunderschöne, honig goldene bis dunkelbraune Farbe mit ausgeprägten Tupfen, an der Basis weiss bis gold. Spitzenexemplar, GEM, voll ausgewachsen, sehr schwer und starker Kallus.

Auf dem Fundzettel steht Edithburgh, Yorke Pen., 8 m. Möglicherweise habe ich den aber auch versehentlich zu diesem gehäuse gelegt. Hm??
