5/9/2014 Posted on Conch-L: "If anyone has first hand collecting experience for this species in Florida, I’d like to hear about it."

In private correspondence
Andy Noturus of Key West (collecting in the Keys for over 10 years) reported: "No T fasciata inshore. When I get out to the reef with Ken Piech I find lividomaculata."

Peggy Williams: "No, I’ve never seen excavata in Florida."
