'rh,* scientific name is given by Mr. H, arnhart as Donax laevigata, but [ mtderstand that another species wa~ very much like i: and was to be /ottnd in the sanlt h)calitles. These little clams have a very uni- form shape and size. They art' sliffht- ly wedge shaped and ab,,ut the size of the ordinary lima bean. They are highly variable as to color of shells. Some shells are uniform white or lem- on or yellow, others are striped with yellow, hltte, l)Url)le, and white, and there art. many conibinations of these coh,rs. The general color effect when on the beds was usually ,>bscured by the position of the sllells and by growths upon the cxpose,l ends, bul whetL visible it was rather tnHque and pleasing.
