Description

Biology

Etymology

  • Hyalocylis, from Ancient Greek “υαλινος”, “of crystal or glass”.
  • Striata, because of the numerous and regular grooves of the shell that indicate its successive enlargements.

Distribution
Species of circumtropical distribution, most reports are from the Western Atlantic. Very abundant in the coasts of South America where in some areas the shells of this species cover the seabed (Karleskint et al, 2010). In the Eastern Atlantic this species is present in Cape Verde (Rolán, 2005), Azores and the Canary islands. It is also present in the Mediterranean, where it has been reported both in the Eastern basin and the Western basin. It is a new species for Catalonia from a recent report (9/02/2019) by Xavier Salvador in Sa Tuna, Begur, Girona (Spain) of several live specimens near the surface.
