I collected a specimen 17mm in height at C.I.T. Key in Newfound Harbor Channel off Big Pine Key in July, 1969.
Another 6mm livida is from Marina Cay, British Virgin Islands, February, 1968.
A third 16mm specimen in my collection is from Barra Grande, Bahia, Brazil, June, 2009. The callus and columella are light orange.
