To me they're the largest ceriths and have broad range of habitation. I have founded them most often around inlets in fort pierce area probably due to needs for sea grass beds. But they sometimes wash up on regular beaches, just not as common as stocky ceriths. I think there are a lot of information lacking with the ceriths. It's obvious each species have different niches in the ecosystem.
