Mitra rubiginea A. Adams, 1854

Mitra rubiginea is rare at Kwajalein. Considered by many authors a form of Mitra fraga, the larger size and more orange coloration (rather than red-brown) seem to warrant keeping it separate for now. Specimens have been found under rocks or exposed at night on hard or rubble substrates on lagoon reefs at depths of 6 to 16m
