Mitra silviae Turner, 2007

Mitra silviae is a small species uncommon to moderately rare at Kwajalein. Specimens have been seen on lagoon pinnacles and on the seaward reef. While they can be found under rocks by day, most are seen crawling in small ledges and caves at night. Its stouter shape with an upturned siphon helps distinguish it from Mitra doliolum.
