Brief Summary

Read full entry
The blunt gaper is closely related to the sand gaper, but is smaller. Compared to the sand gaper, it looks slightly misshaped, as if it got stuck somewhere. The shells are notably truncated at one side. The life-style of the blunt gaper is more or less identical to the sand gaper. You sometimes find fossilize dark gray shells of the blunt gaper on a Dutch beach.
