Another orange-spotted Haminoea

March 21, 1999
From: C. Carlson & P.J. Hoff

We presently have '78' as a new species.  More than likely the shell has been found, deposited and named, but it is difficult to tell which one of the 'round' drawings/descriptions represent this animal.  It is definitely different from H. cymbalum and H. ovalis in terms of color, shell shape, gizzard plates and radula.
