Vexillum lenhilli Kay, 1979
8.9mm

Vexillum lenhilli is rare at Kwajalein. While they have been found under rocks on pinnacle and seaward reefs, the best place to see them is hidden in Halimeda algae plants along lagoon reef sand spits. One algae patch near South Loi had a number of specimens until the algae in that patch vanished. Specimens have been found from 5 to 13m.
