(Dall, 1901)

Family Lucinidae

Many-lined Lucine

Shell size to 6 mm; shell circular to oblique-oval, sculpture with variable "mesh" of commarginal and radial lines. Usually white, sometimes with cream to yellowish tinges. Formerly known as "Lucina multilineata" or "Parvilucina multilineata" (Tuomey and Holmes, 1857). Not commonly found, possibly because of small species size.
