Reports

Jeannette & Scott Johnson about Lentigo pipus from Kwajalein Atoll:

  • "Lentigo pipus are extremely rare in the Marshalls, known from this single pair of specimens from a shallow lagoon reef in the northern half of Kwajalein Atoll found on 13 August 2006. They were at a depth of about 5m on rubbly sand, and both measured close to 54mm in length. This species is known from sporadic locations throughout much of the Indo-Pacific, but I don't believe it has previously been reported from Micronesia."
  • "The shell at the bottom left appears to be older, with a thicker ventral nacre, than the one at the top right."
  • "Like other strombs, the proboscis of this species can stretch way out looking for its algae food." (middle right)
