    Lambis lambis or the common spider conch as the name typifies is easily identified by six extensions of the shell which resemble a spider's legs. The extensions of the shell are limited to flat lobes in juveniles and sub-adults. In males the anterior three extensions are short and bent backwards slightly. In females on the other hand, the anterior three extensions are long and dorsally recurved. The stromboid notch is present.
