  • Comment Wieneke (12/2012): This seems to be a Lambis lambis, which has grown normally until a certain time (marked by the white arrows) and afterwards a rapid process of becoming adult has started with building a varix-like structure. I speculate, that this has been triggered by environmental factors.
