Concerning message #20022:

Well the big bright one is around 10 cm long and the darker ones only ca. 3 cm...

Locality: Rocky shore north of Kuala Terengganu, lower subtidal, 1 m, Terengganu, Malaysia, South China Sea, late May 2007, rocky, sandy, found grazing on Laurencia. Length: small (under 1 cm) to large (10 cm).

They did not really feed on Padina!!! And we lost about half of all we collected. I think because we had to much in each container...

I would love to focus my studies more on the snails than on the algae!!!
Thanks for the answer!!!

Dear Corvin,
Thanks for the size info. If by chnace some of the small ones remain alive for awhile it would be interesting to see what they look like when they are bigger - that's if they get bigger. I suspect they are juveniles.

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
