A micro mollusc is a shelled mollusc which is extremely small, even at full adult size. These tiny molluscs and their tiny shells are easy to overlook.
Considerable numbers of marine gastropod species are only about 5 or 6 mm in adult size; many others are only about 2 or 3 mm in adult size; and a few have adult shells which are as small as one millimetre or even smaller still. Despite their tiny size, many of the shells have a good deal of elaborate sculpture. A fair number of them are even quite colourful, although many others are colourless and translucent.Read more »
