Description The shell is a distinctive, large "bubble", up to 5 cm long, with wavy, brown to black lines. The animal is spectacular rose brown with a vivid light blue margin along the edges, and is much too large to retract into its shell. It feeds on cirratulid worms. Habitat: most often encountered as shells washed up on the beach, this animal can be found in the eulittoral zone where both rocks/boulders and sand occur. Distribution: Indo-Pacific (Richmond, 1997). [details]
