Lepidochitona cinerea

Lepidochitona cinerea

''Lepidochitona cinerea'', known by the common names common chiton or gray chiton, is a chiton .
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)
Update: Yes we have two more species, but this is Lepidochitona cinerea alright
