Northern Lacuna

Lacuna vincta


Small aquatic snails found in tidal areas at low tide. Commonly found with alternating light and dark whorls but sometimes has none. Similar shape to Periwinkles but has a thinner shell, more translucent shell. These were quite small so I believe they were not fully grown.


Marine bay shoreline in Cedar Point County Park.


A surprise find when I was moving the seaweed around looking for critters.
