Imbricaria vanikorensis (Quoy & Gaimard, 1833)

Imbricaria vanikorensis is the least common of the Imbricaria Mitridae at Kwajalein. It is most often seen living buried in thin layers of fine sand that cover flat rocks on some lagoon reefs, particularly places like Ebwaj Island, at depths of about 2 to 14m. Occasionally they can be found on the seaward reef or in reef quarries.
