Oliva sayana, 20 May 2014

Oliva sayana, the Lettered olive;
Volusia county, Florida (20 May 2014).

A lovely, little gastropod of Family Olividae, the Lettered olive is a predatory sea snail. It can be found mucking about the saturated sands, especially when the water is low. During low tide, they’ll slink about on the surface of the exposed beach, leaving a clear trail behind them.
