Notes This species seem rare to find alive but common to find shells. In the mid 80's saw several live specimens in the Ucluelet, BC area. The abundance of dead shells in the drift line of SE Alaska makes me believe this species is common but in a habitat I do not normally explore. The oval shells and pink rays are distinct.
