    Is this a baby snail? I found it next to the large snail that had toppled over?[​IMG]

    Thanks for the responses. I will look for photos of a limpet and a stomatella snail and see if I can come up with a positive ID

    Look up cowrie too, not an expert but to me the shell seems too tall for a stoma and not the right shape for a limpet.

    Will do. Still have not been able to make a determination. Does anyone know of any books that I can use as a reference?
