Lamellaria sp. #11
 
Lamellaria sp. #11
Maximum size:  13 mm.

Identification:  This is a dark orange species with large internal clusters of white granules that generate a fine, reticulated appearance within the clusters. It has a narrow transverse bar of superficial white pigment that lacks the violet dorsal tinge of most Lamellaria sp. #1 transverse bars. The large clusters of granules also separate it from that species. It may be distinguished from Lamellaria sp. #6 by its darker orange color and lack of brown spots on the underside of the mantle.

Natural history:  Lamellaria sp. #11 is known from one animal found in a moderately exposed rocky habitat at about 5 m (15 ft). When flipped, it rolled its mantle edges in a manner reminiscent of Lamellaria(?) sp. #10. (though not as completely).

Distribution:  Maui.

Taxonomic notes:  There is some uncertainty in separating this species from other listed species of Lamellaria. It was first recorded in Hawaii from Kapalua Bay, Maui by CP on April 11, 2019.
