Subject: Re: Florida Oyster Drills
Bill Frank and I have a venial image (my work) of
an apparent adult (15 mm) of my Urosalpinx
species (Lee, 2009: 106; species no. 509) posted
at <http://www.jaxshells.org/616yy.htm>. It is
not particularly reminiscent of U. perrugata.
As Tom Watters remarked, "U." tampaensis is
better placed in Eupleura, and your excellent
line-up of the five images in your slide 1 makes
that assignment all the more plausible.
