Monoplex nicobaricus

Monoplex nicobaricus, common name Nicobar hairy triton, is a species of medium-sized predatory sea snail, a tropical marine gastropod mollusc in the family Ranellidae, the tritons.

Distribution[edit]

This species of marine snail has a wide distribution and lives in the Indo-Pacific and Western Atlantic oceans. Regions where Monoplex nicobaricus is found include Aldabra, Brazil, Canaries, Cape Verde, Chagos, European waters, Florida, Gulf of Mexico, Mascarene Basin and West Indies.[1]

Description[edit]

The shell size varies between 20 mm and 103 mm.[citation needed]

The maximum recorded shell length is 90 mm.[2]

In Hawaii, a group of three Monoplex nicobaricus (probably a mating pair and another male) have attracted a predatory Conus pennaeus, which is attacking the largest Monoplex

Habitat[edit]

Minimum recorded depth is 0 m.[2] Maximum recorded depth is 36 m.[2]
