Some more common British seashells

Scroll down to content

It’s raining again! Let’s have a splash of bright cheerful colour.

The variety of colour in some of our common British seashells is amazing. I particularly love the Flat Periwinkle shells that can be any hue from white to brown and every shade between.

  1. Hi. I think it’s a Grey Top Shell, Gibbula cineraria (Linnaeus). The white gastropod next to it is a very small European Sting Winkle, Ocenebra erinacea (Linnaeus); and below that the more pointed yellow shell with faint dark lines around the whorls is a Black-lined Periwinkle, Littorina nigrolineata Gray.
