Sanchez-Escalona, K.P., Aliño, P.A., Juinio-Meñez, Ma.A. 2017:

  • Abstract: "Sexual size dimorphism of Strombus luhuanus was explored with Geometric Morphometries. Using 39 landmarks and semi-landmarks, principal component analysis (PCA) showed possible separation of sexes with significant loadings on shoulder and the inner lip. Discriminant Function Analysis (DFA) cross-validated classification showed males and females can be identified using the generated shape variables with 83.72% and 71.43% accuracy respectively. Examination of the generated mean shape showed that males are slimmer while females are more bulbous with vector changes along the inner lip and shoulder. Sexual shape may be related to differential energy allocation of reproduction with males spending more on finding a mate and females devoting more on egg production. Statistically quantified shape dimorphism will facilitate better understanding of reproductive behaviour and natural population dynamics of this species."


Jeanette & Scott Johnson about Conomurex luhuanus from Kwajalein Atoll:

  • "Conomurex luhuanus are abundant within Marshall Islands lagoons, but are rarely found on the seaward reefs. Specimens can be found in large numbers on many shallow sand and rubble lagoon interisland reefs as well as on pinnacles at depths from about 1 to at least 16m. Sizes range up to about 60mm. Most specimens have an orange-red aperture, hence the common name (Blood mouth conch). A few, however have apertures either yellow or pure white.
  • top: "Both orange and white aperture specimens"
  • bottom: "Closer shot of a relatively clean-shelled individual. The underside shows the orange red aperture."
  • top: "Like other Strombidae, it has a long proboscis for feeding on algae."
  • bottom: "A pair of algae and sand encrusted individuals with an egg mass, mixed in with that clump of sand in front of the two shells."
