two tiny snail species

On my way back from rock pooling yesterday in Flushing I turned one last rock on the upper shore and found two species of tiny snails that I had not noticed before. First, a couple of Two-toothed white snails Leucophytia bidentata, one of the few terrestrial, airbreathing snails that have returned to a marine habitat:IMG_8230More numerous was the smaller species Cingula trifasciata. Below a group next to a large wormshaped eggmass that my Seasearch Identifications friends quickly pointed out belonged to the Ribbon Worm Lineus ruber:IMG_8246
