Mitra nivea (Broderip, 1836)

Mitra nivea is relatively rare at Kwajalein. Specimens have been observed on the seaward reef in rubble or under rocks by day and exposed in ledges and small caves at night. Empty shells are more frequently seen than living animals.

Mitra nivea has been observed to eat sipunculid (peanut) worms.
