Pseudovertagus nobilis (Reeve, 1855)

The longest of the cerithiids at Kwajalein, Pseudovertagus nobilis is one we have not seen alive. Several empty or hermit crab occupied shells have been found, all of them on tops or on the slopes of lagoon pinnacles. We assume they must live in lagoon bottom sand at the bases of the pinnacles.
