Info

Colubraria muricata ([Lightfoot, 1786])

Colubraria is a genus of sea snails, marine gastropod mollusks in the family Colubrariidae. Members of this genus lack a radula and feed by sucking blood from fish.

Colubraria muricata is the largest of the family in the Marshalls. Like most other species of Colubraria, these are usually active at night and parasitic upon sleeping fish, usually members of the family Scaridae.

Synonymised names:
Buccinum muricatum [Lightfoot], 1786 (original combination)
Colubraria granulata Schumacher, 1817
