Naquetia cumingii (A. Adams, 1853)
60mm

Our references do not all seem to agree on which species is Naquetia cumingii and which is N. triquetra. What we are calling Naquetia cumingii is uncommon in the Marshalls, and is found under rocks or exposed at night at depths of 10 to 20m on the seaward reef. Empty shells are seen more often than living specimens.
