lookalike

Graham - I have agreed. I wonder why no-one else has.
The best lookalike is here

One has to be careful with WebIDs as there are a LOT of errors but this one is from the conchsoc who you'd expect to be right.
I find them really interesting creatures and knew nothing of them until iSpot.
I must say though, they are not all that easy to separate.
You may wish to update the ID to include the word CHITON see
http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/263321
you can then adding some (of your own) notes which might be useful for future spotters.
Excellent picture.
