Terebra taurina (Lightfoot, 1786), Flame Auger

2/20/13 Don:

In either Dec 2010 or Jan 2011 I found a worn section of Terebra taurina at Coral Cove Park; it was identified by Harry Lee. To the best of my recollection it was found in the much larger Palm Beach section of the beach not the much smaller Martin County section. I have not found any at Hobe Sound Wildlife Refuge, the northern end of Jupiter Island, which is entirely in Martin County.


Your find and confirmation by Harry is included in my "only in Palm Beach County" conclusion.
