Mr. Ono's aglajid seems to be a fairly common form that has generally escaped notice because of it's small size and color. Most of the forms we have found have various degrees of brown spotting on a tan
background. Two specimens in Palau were a fairly dark brown with tan margins. We have not seen one with thin crossing stripes. The average size of 21 measured specimens was just under 3mm.

c44 4.0mm; Guam, Bile Bay, reef flat; 25 March 1972
c45 2.0mm; Guam, Bile Bay, river channel; 3 January 1988.
c45_2 size? shell, ventral view; Guam, Bile Bay; July, 1972

Dear Clay & Patty Jo,
From your records and those of Atsushi Ono and Lindsay Warren it seems this is not uncommon. I have kept the other two? species, Atsushi sent photos of [aglajid sp 2, aglajid sp 3] separate at present.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
