  • Comment Oleinik, 2010: "Pictures show very well how the animal is capable of retracting itself into the shell and shows the foot and operculum which the animal uses for jump-like locomotion."

Films

  • Film: Strange feeding behaviour of Lobatus costatus (Gmelin, 1791), 0:34 min; Copyright Anton Oleinik
    • Comment Anton Oleinik: "The picture with two strombus is taken off Marathon, Florida keys, off Delta Shoal near the Delta D barge wreck at 25 feet during night. Water temperature 81oF. It appered to me at first that these strombuses (Strombus (Lobatus) costatus) were mating. But at the closer look you can see that that smaller conch is attached to the back surface of the shell of the larger one. It is my understanding that the smaller one was eating the algae off the shell of the larger one and did not want to give up the salad bar."
  • Film: Hermit crab carrying a Lobatus costatus shell, 0:36 min; Copyright Anton Oleinik
    • Comment Anton Oleinik: "All pictures are of Strombus (Lobatus?) costatus were taken in August - early September of 2010 off Marathon, Florida Keys, Florida, USA, in the vicinity of the Sombrero Reef. These pictures are taken in ~ 25 - 40 feet of water during the day and night on carbonate coral debris sand within the general area of the Hawk Channel and seagrass beds landward from the reef tract."
    • Hermit crab = Petrochirus diogenes (?)
