Like their big cousins, the Little Worm Shells, Vermetus triqueter, are irregularly shaped, twisting and coiling back on themselves. They actually resemble bits of pasta more than seashells. In various shades of white, brown, yellow and pink, they have openings that measure around 2 mm across. Photograph © James Prineas, 2003
