Dear Bill and Tom,
The black turban snail in California is Tegula funebralis>. There is extensive information on this species, its feeding behavior, feeding preferences, population structure, etc. in the scientific literature (Ecology, Veliger, Journal of Exp. Mar. Biology & Ecology). Sorry, I have never heard of the Black Turban sea slug.
