Under rocks in shallow water, 1979, live taken specimen shell. Again a shell collected by B.Cook in November 1979 and is has lost nothing of its original beauty and intense coloring over the decades, in fact these old collection shells are today increasingly more interesting than back in the good old times when they were still easily available for the conchologist. Fully documented GEM specimen.
