Polinices lacteus (Guilding, 1834), Milk Moon-shell
On 12/31/10 I posted notice of this presentation on Conch-L. Following are the comments and information sent in by readers:
12/31 Sid Sneidar reported:
"1097 Naticidae Polinices lacteus (Guilding, 1834) 00/00/63 1097 Bear Cut, Biscayne Bay, Florida, 3', live, in sand, common." Sid provided a photo.
Seem like they are very abaduant around fort pierce. Large specimens are uncommon to rare on beaches but when sorting shell hash from splash zone a lot of tiny ones can be found.
