Definitely wouldn't want to go stumbling around in the dark with those sticking out of the ground!

Your patience paid off, it's a beauty.

It sure is! Apparently a couple of collectors were killed when a man-made cavern collapsed there a few years ago, so there are needless to say restrictions on digging now.

Congratulations! Beautiful gastropod. Campanile symbolicum Iredale, 1917, is now the only one left of the Gender and Family that once had so much biodiversity in the Tethys.
