Favartia cf tetragona (Broderip, 1833)

This Favartia is only tentatively identified as F. tetragona. It is rare in the Marshalls, known from only two specimens found empty at 13m on the Kwajalein Atoll eastern seaward reef. It may be more common out there, but weather conditions make this a difficult area to get to, and it has not been thoroughly searched.
