Description A solid, white shell, up to 3 cm, with four prominent rows of spiny nodules and numerous other smaller spines. Surface occasionally smooth, depending on the degree of overgrowth by coralline algae. Overall colour whitish with yellow aperture. A predator of living coral (corallivorous). Population explosions of this gastropod can cause extensive damage to the hard-coral cover on reefs. Habitat: on or under coral heads and boulders in the lower eulittoral and shallow sublittoral. Distribution: Indo-Pacific. (Richmond, 1997). [details]
