Echinolittorina angustior (Mörch, 1876)  Slender Periwinkle

Be sure to review Echinolittorina of Florida for full explanation for obsolete and current names of species found in Florida.  Ref: Reid, D.G., 2009. The genus Echinolittorina Habe, 1956 (Gastropoda: Littorinidae) in the western Atlantic Ocean. Zootaxa 2184: 1-103. Aug. 6.

in Florida to deal with, as follows:

      [formerly E. riisei (Mörch, 1876)]
