Brown-band wentletrap

We haven’t had much luck with the larger shells at the Sanibel lighthouse beach lately so  ….we walk for wentles. Last evening, Clark found this brown wentletrap. I looked it up on the Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum website to properly name it ……  looks to me like a BROWN-BAND WENTLETRAP. Nice, huh?

We ran into a family that were happy as clams to be finding the minis too. Jennifer from Atlanta has taught her whole family the names of all of the shells and how to enjoy the small treasures.
