The “Perry’s Triton” is an attractive triton native to Indian Ocean ranging from Sri Lanka to Mozambique. It is a common carnivorous and predatory gastropod living in shallow water ranging from very shallow water up to about -80m deep. Average shell length around 110mm, large specimens often exceed 130mm. It is the type species of genus Lotoria and is similar to L. lotoria (L., 1758) and L. grandimaculata (Reeve, 1844) but can be distinguished from them by the lack of dark spots on the columellar shield, more knobby form, and more regularly spaced pattern on the varices. – From Chong Chen’s post
