Primovula bellica - 1050664

THE GEM OF THE LITTLE: A GORGEOUS BELLICA FROM FUJIAN.

But truly not that little: Fehse figured in Visaya 2(3) an almost identical shell from China, but only 4.2 mm in length. Compared to that specimen, this is a giant.

The bellica has been figured quite extensively by either Lorenz & Fehse, Cate and Poppe. The base color is variable. The combination of soft pastel yellow with an orange tip is not seen in many shells.

Estimation: 40-75 euro. A beauty, not common at all. We got only 8 bellica in the past.
