Apertural view of a shell of Calliostoma trotini

Calliostoma is a genus of small to medium-sized sea snails with gills and an operculum, marine gastropod molluscs within the family Calliostomatidae, the Calliostoma top snails (according to the taxonomy of Gastropoda by Bouchet & Rocroi (2005)). Previously this genus was placed within the family Trochidae. Calliostoma is the type genus of the family Calliostomatidae.

The name of this genus is derived from the Greek words kallos (beautiful) and stoma (mouth), referring to the pearly aperture of the shell. The genus Calliostoma is known in fossil records from the Upper Cretaceous onwards.[2]

The distribution of this genus is worldwide, found mainly on hard substrates, although Japanese species have been found on sandy bottoms. These snails occur from shallow waters to bathyal depths.

The species in this genus are mainly herbivorous or feed on detritus,[3] although a few have been observed to be omnivorous (Keen, 1975) or even carnivorous, feeding on a wide range of algae and on animals belonging to various other invertebrate phyla.[4] The North Atlantic topshell Calliostoma occidentale has been reported to feed on coelenterates.[5]

Contrary to what is the case in most other top shells, Calliostoma deposits its eggs in gelatinous ribbons that are only fertilized after being deposited. The young emerge as small snails (Lebour, 1936) without passing through a free-living planktonic stage as a veliger larva.

Description
The rather thin, acute, coeloconoid (=approaching conical shape but with concave sides) shell is imperforate or rarely umbilicate. The whorls are smooth, often polished and spirally ridged or granular. The body whorl is angulated at the periphery. The aperture is quadrangular, sinuated at the base and slightly oblique. The columella is simple, usually ending anteriorly in a slight tooth.[6] The nucleus appears to be either dextral or sinistral indifferently.[7][8]

Species
Currently, Calliostoma is being treated in WoRMS as a broad genus. It is expected to be broken up and (some) subgenera will be elevated to the status of genus. At this moment (2013), information is too fragmentary to assign all species in a revised genus.

cumingia tellinoides

Shell of the Week: The Tellin Semele

Despite its name, the Tellin Semele is not a tellin, but is instead a semelid, like the clam presented last week, the Concentric Ervilia. Cumingia tellinoides (Conrad, 1831) reaches 15 mm (about 0.6 inch.) The prevailing color in this species is a dirty-white, but some shells may be slightly translucent. The shell sculpture consists of fine but well-defined growth lines, and the hinge consists basically of elongate lateral teeth and an internal ligament that rests inside a spoon-shaped chondrophore.
