Rissoa

Rissoa is a genus of minute sea snails, marine gastropod mollusks or micromollusks in the family Rissoidae.[1]

The genus was first introduced by M. de Freminville for some small shells observed by M. Antoine Risso, a distinguished naturalist of Nice, France. They were described by M. Demarest in 1814 in the "New Bulletin of the Philomatic Society". [2]

Description

The soft body of the snail is elongated and spiral. The somewhat prolonged mouth has a proboscis. The tentacles are awl-shaped with the eyes on a small prominence near the base. The foot is oval or elliptical. The species is phytophagous.

The conical shell has an elongated spire with its apex nipple-shaped. The size of the shell varies between 1 mm and 8 mm. The whorls are generally convex-shaped with a distinct suture. The aperture is ovate, roundish or pear-shaped with its anterior end rounded, the posterior end acute and with the peristome complete. The thin and horny operculum is spirally marked and equally ovate, roundish or pear-shaped. [2]

Habitat

This species can be found on brown algae (genus Fucus), in clefts of rocks, on stones, on mud or sand. Most will be found on sandy beaches along the line of the last tide. [2]
