Ray Simpson contacted us recently about an image of Tambja oliva that we have in the photo gallery on our website [message #14592 ]. The specimen was taken at 170 ft depth off South Carolina on a submersible dive (Johnson Sea Link) as part of a NOAA expedition we were involved in in 2003.
I'm a crustacean taxonomist and have very limited abilities with molluscs thus we have not moved very far ahead with our molluscan identification work. We have only one specimen of that species so far, but we are still processing material from our 03/04 sampling seasons.
All the best,
