The first contains only one bead, which is the shell of Cypraea
moneta (or 'money cowrie', named after the use of this shell as money since ancient times).
This relationship has been documented at the geographic microscale in the barnacles Semibalanus balanoides (Bertness, 1989) and Jehlius cirratus (Lopez et al., 2007, 2014), where crowded barnacles showed thinner shell or cirral appendages compared with solitary barnacles; and in the gastropod Cypraea
annulus (Irie, 2006), where juvenile shell size and callus thickness decreased with increasing density.
b) pure (Cypraea
caputdraconis): snails larger than the pipi.
