Sinoflustra annae (Osburn, 1953)

Sinoflustra annae is a tropical species, and is found from Panama, West Africa, the China Sea, and the Gulf of Carpentaria. It is clearly being dispersed on the hulls of ships. As with numerous other species assigned to the genus, the relationship with the type species is tenuous. The figure shows several spines extending over the opesia, and a large vicarious vicularium.
