Easter Island acteonid

May 17, 2002
From: Bret Raines

Hello Bill,
During a trip to Easter Island in March 1998, I found this tiny acteonid. I have been unable to ID it, but that's no surprise since my area is Pectinidae. It was actually live taken, but was only discovered later when sorting through mud dredged at 80 meters. Sorry about the image quality.
7mm shell length
Thank you in advance for your time.

Dear Bret,
I am afraid I can't really help except to agree its an acteonid.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
