The Cayenne keyhole limpet, scientific name Diodora cayenensis, is a species of small to medium-sized sea snail or limpet, a western Atlantic marine prosobranch gastropod mollusk in the family Fissurellidae, the keyhole limpets. This species is named after Cayenne, the capital of French Guiana.
Cellana radians, common name the radiate limpet, is a species of true limpet, a marine gastropod mollusc in the family Nacellidae, which is one of the true limpet families. Description The foot and the head are lightly colored whereas Cellana flava has darker colored soft tissues.
Cellana talcosa, the talc limpet or turtle limpet is a species of true limpet, a marine gastropod mollusc in the family Nacellidae, which is one of the true limpet families. This species is endemic to the Hawaiian islands, where its common name is koele or opihi ko'ele.
Limpet mortality is greatest during spring and summer, particularly on the upper levels of the shore and if limpet densities are high. Cellana shares the same habitat on rocky shore with other common grazing molluscs, particularly Nerita atramentosa and Bembicium nanum.

The common slipper shell, Crepidula fornicata, has many other common names, including common Atlantic slippersnail, boat shell, quarterdeck shell, fornicating slipper snail, Atlantic slipper limpet and it is known in Britain as the "common slipper limpet".
To our surprise, we discover that both polyphenism and cryptic species are present in the N. scapha–N. helmsi complex: no limpet species in New Zealand is restricted to living on Zostera but five previously unrecognized species, which are all but indistinguishable morphologically, occur over a wide range of habitats.
The owl limpet is a territorial species and some individuals return to the same specific homesite every time the tide goes out. The limpet's contours grow to fit the rock surface tightly. The limpet's contours grow to fit the rock surface tightly.
Patelloida is a genus of sea snails or true limpets, marine gastropod molluscs in the family Lottiidae, one of the families of true limpets. (This genus name should not be confused with the similar-sounding true limpet superfamily Patelloidea, which is also part of the Patellogastropoda).
Limpet tooth structure is dependent upon living depth of the specimen. While deep water limpets have been shown to have the same elemental composition as shallow water limpets, deep water limpets do not show crystalline phases of goethite. Crystallization process
