Erosaria acicularis (Gmelin, 1791)  Atlantic Yellow Cowrie

In my experience E. acicularis is found off Florida's east coast and in shallow waters in SE Florida. I have no records from the Keys.

Juvenile. Note teleoconch.                                                                Turtle Cay, Bimini, Bahamas. 29 mm





For more information, see Erosaria acicularis at the Cowrie Genetic Database Project , currently (March 2008) maintained in the Invertebrate Department at the Florida Museum of Natural History located at the University of Florida in Gainesville.
