Shining balcis:
Shining balcis (Balcis micans): This small, inconspicuous species is part of a group of small gastropods (the family Eulimidae, also known as Melanellidae), that often are associated with echinoderms. This particular species is distinguished thanks to its straight profile that is only broken by the swelling of the opening (some species have a bent shell, convex whorls, or an opening that does not break the left line), and by its size which makes it larger than some other members of the family.
