Sample text

In extremely dry habitats L. saxatilis may extend further up the shore, as at St Ann's Head in Pembroke shire. They both overlap with L. nigrolineata, although the latter does not extend as far up the shore as the upper limit of L. saxatilis and L. arcana and extends further down than do either of these two species. This is similar to the description in Heller (1975). At Westdale Bay, Dyfed, the juveniles of L. nigrolineata and some juveniles of L. saxatilis can be identified by shell sculpturing which, from observation of adults, we know to be characteristic of the species.
