Strombus Floridanus

Stromboidea


Original description of Strombus pugilus floridanus by Mansfield, 1930, p. 95:

  • "Shell of moderate size, rather stout, consisting of 2 corroded, apparently smooth, nuclear and about 8 sculptured subsequent whorls. First five postnuclear whorls narrowly conical; succeeding broadly conical. First and second postnuclear whorls weakly inflated, not shouldered; third, fourth and fifth shouldered; sixth and seventh not shouldered; body whorl roundly shouldered. Spiral sculpture of narrow raised bands over the whole surface except on the back of the body whorl of adult specimens. Axial sculpture of arcuate riblets on the early whorls, which become gradually shorter on ascending the spire, and on the penultimate whorl are rather low, rounded tubercles situated behind the suture. Body whorl without tubercles. Angled color bands are visible on the back of the body whorl. The apices of the angles of the color bands point backward and originate near the middle of the whorl."
