On sponges at 30m. I see a 15mm hairline nacre line at the labral side on the edge between base and margin. You will have to look close under strong light to see the flaw. Superb margins with panther skin and blue halo. Dark orange base. Dark brown and orange brown top with white dorsal line. Despite the flaw this is a near GEM shell and outstanding with a superb color range.

Diver collected at 25-65m on sponge covered rocks/caves. ALMOST BLACK SHELL FROM ALBANY, W.A.! THIS IS A VERY RARE COLOUR VARIATION OF VENUSTA ROSEOPUNCTATA. THIS IS NOT ONLY A DARK SHELL BUT THE DORSAL PATCHES ARE REALLY BLACK. ONE OF THE DARKEST VENUSTAS I´VE EVER HAD.

40 m

By scuba diver on sponge in reef, 40 m off Albany. I see a half round line that looks like a hairline in the middle of dorsum. Disturbing for me as I am picky. Beautiful sky blue spot on both side of which one is a big one.
