A New Caecum from Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands
Abstract:A new species of Caecum is described from the Puerto Rico and Virgin Island platform. The new species appears to be confined to this island group in contrast to the wide distribution of most species of the Caecidae. Scanning electron microscope photographs illustrate the microsculpture of the new gastropod and of two closely related species, C. imbricatum and C. floridanum.
