Shell identification photography…. Northland Coast, NZ Summer 2018
Andrew Spurgeon from the ‘NZ Mollusca’ website identified them as “….2 species of Rock Borer. The one with the pointed end…is called Barnea similis and the smaller one with the smooth round end… is called Pholadidea suteri. They are not uncommon but as they usually live completely buried in the mudstone, they seldom wash up on our beaches…..”.
