Atrina pectinata

(Linnaeus, 1767)


Manfred Keller Atrina pectinata - Puerto Galera (Philippines)

João Pedro Silva Location please.

Cameron Easton Looks a bit like Humann & Deloach's picture of the comb pen shell, Atrina pectinata, but the habitat may not be quite right - so, not sure.

Manfred Keller yes, http://eol.org/data_objects/11577396 :-)

Blogie Robillo I see this in the Davao Gulf too. Very nice photo!
