Abalone Piddock (Penitella conradi)

Description

This was a surprise! At first I assumed that the volcano-shaped object inside this mussel was a barnacle. Not so. There's a young piddock, a boring clam, inside the "volcano" and it's the right size to have grown in there. As a larva, it must have landed on this mussel and bored into it. The mussel built up layers of shell around it as it grew. (So obviously the mussel was alive while it happened.) I didn't know this was possible. Bob Creek Beach.

Entrance hole is visible on the outside of the mussel shell. When initiated, the hole must have been pinprick size, but the mussel has been abraded.
