Hi,

A friend of mine found this Crenavolva on a white sea whip off Singapre recently. It is only 5.9 mm. Any idea what its species is? It is rather small for a mature virgo or grovesi. However, it does share some resemblance to grovesi such as the heavily calloused terminals and deep incised striation. The living animal is completely white with large white papillae.

Thanks in advance, and apologies for the poor picture of the living animal.

this seems to be a whitish form of Cr. guidoi
I have seen it grey colour, but this is the first really white one.
For sure it is not grovesi or virgo

Thanks! Recently a few of these tiny white shells have been photographed off Singapore. They are always on white sea whips.
