Mitromorpha alphonsiana (Hervier, 1900)
5.35mm

The literature and web sites seem conflicted on whether this is Mitromorpha alphonsiana or M. lachryma. We have also seen it on the web as M. purpurata, a species gastropods.com shows as a slightly different species. These are uncommon under rocks on the seaward reef slope. This specimen was found and photographed by Stan Jazwinski.
