Nassarius concinnus (Powys, 1835)

Nassarius concinnus is occasionally seen at night in ledges and small caves on both the seaward reef and lagoon pinnacles, and less commonly in sand under rocks along lagoon reefs. Maximum size of the shell is about 20.5mm. Like some of the other small Nassarius, they are more often seen occupied by nocturnal hermit crabs than by their original inhabitants.
