Epitonium sp. 5

This Epitonium was found by Christina Sylvester in the sands on the lagoon side of Roi-Namur Island. The 20mm long shell resembled a small Epitonium pyramidale or a large E. replicatum, the distinctly yellow tentacles differ from what we have observed in both other species. It may be a variation of one of those, but we are figuring it separately for now.
