Bolma rugosa (Linnaeus, 1767) (Gastropoda, Prosobranchia, Turbinidae) van Oostkapelle (Walcheren)
Spirula , Volume 333 - Issue 1 p. 85- 86
Recently I found in a sample of shell-grit from the beach of Oostkapelle, Walcheren, the Netherlands, large numbers of fossil Striarca lactea lactea (L., 1758) and Alvania lactea (Michaud, 1832). Remarkably I found also a juvenile specimen of the genus Bolma, most probably Bolma rugosa (L., 1767). There are no records of earlier finds of this species from the Dutch coasts. In my opinion it is a fossil specimen from the Middle or Late Pleistocene just as the two other mentioned species. But I can not ignore the possibility that it is a worn recent specimen although this species does not occur north of Portugal.
