Many of these were found on small rocky areas near an ocean beach at low tide. About 20mm diameter, mostly matte black. Ocean/bay beach on a small patch of sedimentary rocks. No operculum was found nor live specimens so species ID is difficult.

    "Hi David. I just chatted with Audrey Falconer and Simon Grove who treat them as two species. Unfortunately my pic doesn't have the information to distinguish - an operculum with either black or brown colouration. :-) Can I therefore ask a favour to add Nerita sp. - thanks."
