• Norwegian: pelikanfotsnegl


The Pelican's foot can only be confused with the less common A. serresianus. The shell opening (aperture) is dominated by an extended lip, shaped like the webbed foot of a bird. The lip of A. serresianus extends past the tip of the spire (apex), while the lip of A. pespelecani only reach half way. The shell is sand colored on the outside and pearly white on the inside. It can reach a length of 4.5 cm. The body is white with yellow blotches.


The Pelican foot lives on mud or muddy sand from the subtidal zone and down to 180 meters.


It is registered from the Mediterranean to Norway and Iceland.
