I added three definite M. lateralis from a container to the pink morphed specimens. Although I can see many similarities such as the unribbed side of the top shell, I thought I had a new shell because of the difference in shape.Usually it is smaller. It is shown in photos 2 and 3 above.On the other hand, photo 4 has a M. lateralis (old specimen) on the left and a pink one on the right. The M. lateralis on the left is longer than the pink specimen to its right.
