New Shell for my book – Thorny Slipper Shell – Crepidula aculeata (Gmelin)

Here’s the latest addition to my collection of Caribbean shells to go into my upcoming “E-Shell Book “Seashells of the Caribbean” book electronic keys and links. It’s the Spine or Thorny Slipper Shell found from the Carolinas all the way south to Curacao in the West Indies.  Note the distinct twist to the anterior of the shell and if flipped over the interior has a thin plate covering about 1/3 of the interior so that the shell appears kind of like a slipper – hence the name.
