Breathing pore

Thank you for your input Martin.

Yes some of the photos for this specie make a good visual match but the pneumostome (breathing pore) is reported to be located on the right, in the posterior third of the mantle on the Lehmannia valentiana. In the picture provided you can see that the breathing pore is located closer to the head.

The breathing pore is low

The breathing pore is low down near the foot fringe near the rear of the mantle. I think you are seeing a piece of faecal material further forward stuck to the mantle.
