Checkered nerite

Nerita tessellata


The shell of this nerite can be as large as 25 mm. The background shell color is black, usually with white markings. Fairly often the white markings are regularly spaced, and make the shell look checkered or tesselated (tiled), hence the specific name of this species.


Pink Beach area, Bonaire.
