  • Comment Doug Brennan: is the only one we logged into the collection. We do not normally collect them. Most of the ones we see have been washed up on the beach and are very worn.

Reports

  • Doug Brennan on Sinustrombus taurus: "Just prior to the Typhoon Choi-wan, a friend of mine let me know he ran into a "herd" of S. taurus. There were about three dozen of them hopping around on course, algae covered rubble in about 15 meters of water. I have heard that S. taurus travel in large groups but have never seen more than two or three at one time. I have also heard about large groups of them from friends on Guam, too. I wonder if they move into shallow water to feed prior to a storm."
  • Doug Brennan from Mariana Islands: "We have found live Cancellariidae Scalptia contabulata in the apertures of live Lambis chiragra and Lambis truncata. I have personally found up to three live C. contabulata in the aperture of a single Lambis chiragra. This occurs mostly in January and February when the water is slightly cooler than the rest of the year."
  • Doug Brennan: "I have seen large groups of S. luhuanus here (Mariana Islands, Saipan), on Guam and in Okinawa."
