Info

Colubraria tenera (Gray, 1839)

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.

Like most other species Colubraria tenera parasitizes sleeping fish, usually parrotfish, at night. Also, one specimen was found sucking the blood of a mostly buried stonefish (Synanceia verrucosa) in a seaward reef ledge during the day.

Synonymised names:

Triton comptus G. B. Sowerby III, 1874 (Invalid: junior homonym of Triton comptus A. Adams, 1855; Colubraria castanea is a replacement name)
