Volvarina cf philippinarum (Redfield, 1848)

One of these was found under a rock on the western Kwajalein Atoll seaward reef. The identification is based on photos in Poppe (2008), which show a similarly shaped shell occupied by an animal bearing orange spots. The ID is uncertain, though, since Poppe's shells are obviously banded with brown.
