Baler Volute

Baler Volute (Melo melo)
Chek Jawa, 24th April 2011

This empty shell of a Baler Volute was found during a routine Team Seagrass monitoring session. Strangely, unlike most other large empty shells, this one was not occupied by a Striped Hermit Crab (Clibanarius infraspinatus), although it had clearly already been colonised by Flat Slipper Limpets (Crepidula walshi), ascidians, and algae.
