Observations: These curious gastropods have a hard muscular outer armature which opens in a characteristic star shape to reveal their inner shell. When opened, the females emit a yeasty aroma, like fresh baked bread to attract their mates.
They are treasured in some regions of France as a delicacy, often incorporated into a savory pie.
