Lentigo lentiginosusis commonly referred to as Silver conch, Silver Lip, Freckled Stromb, Silver Stromb. Difficulty in the aquarium: There are no reports available yet that this animal has already been kept in captivity successfully. Toxicity: Toxic hazard unknown.
Very special thanks for the first photo of Lentigo lentiginosus to Jean_Marie Gradot from La Réunion.
The silver wing snail lives on coral and sandy bottoms in clear water, it is often found around barrier or lagoon reefs, in the intertidal and shallow intertidal zones, only rarely is the snail seen buried in the sand.
As with many strombids, the adult shell of Lentigo lentiginosus is very heavy and thick, with a characteristic deep stromboid notch and a flared, very thick and posteriorly expanded outer lip.
The opening is pink to orange on the inside and becomes paler towards the edges.
The hermit crab Dardanus guttatus, is one of the beneficiaries when silver conch has died, it immediately occupies the empty shell.
