Vexillum xerampelinum (Melville, 1895)

Vexillum xerampelinum is rare at Kwajalein. Specimens have been found in seaward reef caves at night and empty shells brought up in sediment samples from the steep seaward slope at depths of 20m and deeper. It bears some resemblance to Vexillum rubrotaeniatum, but is narrower and solid red-brown in color.
