I saw this guy at Vet's Park in Redondo Beach, CA at about 70fsw. I can't seem to find it in my nudi ID book.

Any help with the ID would be appreciated. Thanks!

Looks a lot like a Lewis's Moonsnail - is that a possibility? Love sandy habitat.

Yeah! I think that's it! That sighting is a first for me. Thanks for the help, Janna!

Most certainly Lewis' Moon Snail. Yay!
