    I will try to get a picture from the top....but it looks just like a keyhole limpet but with a flesh shell. It has the same hole on top.

    It should have a hard shell that the flesh mantle covers

    It probably does have a shell underneath but you don't see it....just the flesh covering. I have several hard shell limpets and one of these fleshy type....
