  1. Excellent intro of a new order of species to JD - inspired me to find an European representative in my older pictures :o)

    Lepidochitona cinerea Some sources mention that we only have this one species in the Netherlands ("Asgrauwe Keverslak"), but others list at least three or four. I have no idea about identification of this group, so any correction is very welcome :o)<br />
Update: Yes we have two more species, but this is Lepidochitona cinerea alright<br />
