None of these challenges the fact that 5 distinct Moon Snails have been observed in the waters around Cortes Island. Most aquatic gastropods are benthic and mainly epifaunal but some are planktonic. There are 19 families within the superfamily Helicoidea according to the taxonomy of the Gastropoda by Bouchet & Rocroi, 2005. The chances of finding an Arctic Moon Snail are better, since the species inhabits the sub- to intertidal beaches around Cortes Island, though it is not very common: Fig.6 Cryptonatica affinis (Arctic Moon Snail), Synonym: Natica clausaNote: “clausa” referred to the closed umbilicus characteristic of this genus. A moon snail using its foot as a plough cl. Neverita lewisii (previously known as Polinices lewisii, Lunatia lewisii, Euspira lewisii), common name Lewis’s moon snail, is a species of large operculated sea snail. Box 422 – 957 Beasley Road Genus Aurelia basically consists of a variety of moon jellyfish, most well-known, of course, is the species Aurelia aurita. nov.] FAMILY Naticidae One of the best-known invertebrates in the sandy intertidal zone is the Moon Snail, both because it is a large (up to 13 cm in diameter) species and because its egg masses are especially notable. And, just as a special treat, here is a more or less complete list of synonyms for this particular species – so you can appreciate what a taxonomist has to wade through (OCD actually helps): Euspira canonica Dall, 1919 They live just below the surface of the sand, 10 cm or deeper. Slater Museum of Natural History 1500 N. Warner St. #1088 Tacoma, WA 98416 253.879.3356 Making matters more complicated is the fact that the intertidal Aleutian Moon Snail shell is almost identical to the Arctic one – with the exception of an indistinct whitish band surrounding the shell’s (closed) umbilicus: Fig.7 Cryptonatica aleutica (Aleutian Moon Snail) Synonym: Natica aleutica. For some reason, the taxonomy of Moon Snails is more confusing and frustrating than that of other groups of animals: it turns out that the common names are more reliable than the technical ones: Lewis’ Moon Snail, Drake’s Moon Snail, Arctic Moon Snail, Aleutian Moon Snail, Pallid Moon Snail.

Mytilus sp. With the aid of acidic enzymes and a very competent radula (a kind of tooth-covered tongue), Moon Snails create very neat, countersunk boreholes. 1998. Obviously, with the enormous advances made in genetic research and DNA analysis, the geneticists have a lot to say about how closely or distantly related two living beings are. More detailed trail maps, brochures, local information, suggestions and directions are available during Museum open hours. Fig.8 Arctic and Aleutian live comparison (Internet image). The cnidocytes are also the source of the sting that people feel when we come in contact with a moon jelly. Fig.3b Occasionally, the prey, like this Butter Clam, manages to escape its attacker and is left with incomplete drill-marks as proof of the close-call it lived through. — Stephen Jay Gould, 1941 – 2002, Cortes Island, Cortes Island History, Cortes Island Nature, Lewis' Moon snail, snails, Summer Hours: (All photographs are the author’s unless indicated otherwise.). The large, fleshy foot of the moon snail evolved in a mantle-like shape that serves to hold prey and prevent them from escaping. On beaches where the shell of this species washed up commonly, the operculum will usually also be found washed up in the drift line. The sea surrounding Cortes Island is home to 5 of them, including Lewis’, which happens to be the largest member of its family (Naticidae). Being quite common, especially in sandy or muddy intertidal habitats, most of us will be familiar, not only with the beautiful globose shells but with the fact that the animal spends most of its time buried and ploughing through the substrate, in search of clams or even other snails. Having the complete collection would make a fine contribution to the Cortes Museum. Natica stellata (Hedley, C., 1913) Starry Moon Snail; Stellate Sand Snail Shell size 17 - 45 mm Australia; Indo-W Pacific cimas@twincomm.ca.

There are 4 visible gonads which are purple in males and yellow or white in females. cl. Lunatia choshiensis Tiba, 1985 Upon finding one, it "drills" a hole into the shell with its radula, releases digestive enzymes, and sucks out the somewhat predigested contents. Biological Control: The biological control agent, decollate snail, Rumina decollata, is considered a threat to native slug and snail species as well as a direct plant feeder and banned from shipment to the Pacific Northwest. Naticidae, common name moon snails or necklace shells, is a family of minute to large-sized predatory sea snails, marine gastropod molluscs in the clade Littorinimorpha.

Note: arrows indicate the white band mentioned above. C lass - Gastropoda. Taxonomy is supposed to represent the true evolutionary relationships between different organisms (as in the genealogies or family trees many humans try to establish for their own ancestry). The author is in possession of 4 and would heartily appreciate finding (or receiving as a gift) number 5: the Pallid Moon Snail! Natica groenlandica Möller, 1842 The moon jelly uses these stinging cells to hunt small pelagic invertebrates and occasionally fishes and to capture other food particles with which it might come in contact. Empty shells of clams and snails, including other moon snails, display evidence of predation by a moon snail when they are seen to have a neat "countersunk" hole drilled in them. — Robert Louis Stevenson, 1850 – 1894, Taxonomy anywhere else in science is apt to strike a certain type of impatient student as a gratuitous orgy of pedantry. The small juveniles of Lewis’ Moon Snail probably live subtidally, for their shells are almost never found. It is a predatory marine gastropod in the family Naticidae, the moon snails. O rder - Archaeogastropoda. Doubtless, compulsions to intellectual tidiness express themselves prematurely at times, and excessively at others, but a good descriptive taxonomy, as Darwin found in developing his theory, and as Newton found in the work of Kepler, is the mother of laws and theories. This species, like all moon snails, feeds voraciously on clams and other snails. 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Euspira heros (Say, 1822). Moon jelly, (genus Aurelia), genus of marine jellyfish of the order Semaeostomeae (class Scyphozoa, phylum Cnidaria) characterized by their pale translucent bodies and commonly found in coastal waters, particularly those of North America and Europe. The several thousand eggs per collar (each around one-sixth of a millimetre wide) spend only about one week within the egg collar, which explains why they are seldom observed, even though many collars are littering the sandy intertidal areas. Nuculana acuta Conrad 1832 pointed nut clam. Tuesday to Sunday The reasons for the classification of Aurelia aurita is very understandable when the characteristics of each group, stated above, are taken into consideration.

It appears that a lot of water is expelled during this relatively slow process, which continues until the entire soft body (snails are molluscs, after all) is protected, and the operculum (a kind of trap-door, made from horny material and attached to the back of the snail’s foot) closes the shell opening completely. Within a few days, they have taken up the typical Moon Snail lifestyle of predation by drilling tiny countersunk holes through the shells of ostracodes (clam-like crustaceans) and tiny clams. In: MolluscaBase (2015). Fig.3 As this small collection of drilled shells demonstrates, Lewis’ attacks a variety of shelled molluscs, even snails.
