Turbo militaris (Reeve, 1848)
Widespread throughout the Solitary Islands Marine Park. Found throughout southern Queensland and New South Wales south to about Wollongong.
Common in shallow inshore rocky reef areas, from shallow to at least 5m.
Some specimens are completely smooth, with a few showing incipient to strongly developed spines on the body whorl. Both forms may occur together on the same rock platform. Prone to over exploitation in the Solitary Islands Marine Park and now more common in the wave washed low intertidal zone. Size to 100mm length.
