Beach combing for limpet shells

I spent yesterday combing the beaches for limpet shells. São Tomé was hit with a big storm last week and there were many shells washed ashore. If there are indeed limpets here, some shells should have been washed ashore by the storm. I enlisted the help of some locals and they found many limpet-like shells but alas, none are true limpets.
