Maximum size:  2 mm shell length.

Identification:  The shells of this species  are  flattened and plate-like with broad, radiating white bands. They're somewhat variable in width.

Natural history:  Dolabrifera sp. #1 is known only from a handful of shells found in beach drift from moderately exposed to exposed sites.

Distribution:  Maui and Midway.

Taxonomic notes:  Carlo Cunha (pers. com.) suggested that these shells are probably from a second, smaller species of Dolabrifera.
