Spotted Slipper Shell


This shell appears to be a Spotted Slipper Snail or Crepidula maculosa (Conrad, 1846). It was found by a 17 year old Lucien Pearson Beckner in 1889 at Naples, Florida, USA. Mr. Beckner was a mentor to Professor James Conkin (1924-2017) and his natural history collection was left to him upon his death.
