Bob Abela on Canarium microurceus from Guam:

  • "The shell is about 10mm. A common species on Guam. I placed a few in the aquarium to feed a small Conus legatus."

Report about S. sinuatus x taurus hybrid form from Guam by Bob Abela:

  • "I believe the specimen was collected from Hospital Point where an established population of S. taurus exists. S. sinuatus, by all observations, is much more restricted on Guam. A known S. sinuatus population exists just inside the Glass Breakwater (Apra Harbor) and is generally not associated to Hospital Point. I can only speculate that a veliger of S. sinuatus settled on S. taurus "grounds" and hybridized for lack of a better mate."
