Macroschisma sp. from Malindi, Kenya
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: In this marine snail, the small elongate shell with its large triangular hole sits on top of a relatively large slug-like animal. The exhalent aperture projects like a long tube from the rear of the hole.
