Mimatys fukuokaensis Habe, 1952
|Maximum size: 2.5 mm shell
This is a small species with a proportionately thick shell.
Mimatys fukuokaensis is known from about a
dozen shells found in sand samples from depths
of 52 m to about 122 m (170 ft to about 400 ft). Nothing is known about
Maui: widely distributed in the central and western Pacific.
Taxonomic notes: This species is illustrated in Severns, 20ll as #4, plate 189 (mislabeled in the caption as Diniatys dentifer
and mis-numbered as "6"--caption switched with #5, plate 189). It's
illustrated on-line under several genera. Manuel Malaquais suggested the placement (pers. com.) though there may still be some uncertainty on the species. It was
recorded in Hawaii by Mike Severns.
