Kice Island Marine Mollusk Checklist

Compiled by Harry G. Lee and Amy Tripp

- 349 species as of 4/14/2014 | updated on 4/14/2014 -

    It’s safe to say that very few visitors to this website are unaware that Sanibel Island has the most renowned shelling beaches in our country and arguably on Earth. Yet, since a many collectors consider diversity an important index of the shelling experience, one might legitimately ask just how many species can someone find on Sanibel’s beaches? The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum (BMSM) has launched an investigation to make just that determination. Thanks to the efforts of Dr. José H. Leal, several local collectors, and some outside collaborators, an illustrated inventory is now posted on BMSM website. At the time of this writing (20 February, 2012), the species count has reached 302. That number, while certain to rise in the months and years to come, provides a yardstick by which other shelling destinations may be measured. 

    Amy Tripp has been collecting at Kice Island not far distant from those hallowed sands of Sanibel. Kice Island is a barrier island just south of Marco, Florida, where she spends several of the cooler months each year. The senior author took note of her successes (180 species) a couple of years ago and suggested that a substantial volume (~ 1 liter) of stranded “grunge” from Kice be examined for micromollusks in an attempt to increase the species count. During the winters of 2008, 2010, and 2011 drifted “grunge” rich in small shells was scooped up from a sandbar running west from the north end of the island, dried, and subjected to examination under the microscope. The following is an analysis of the mollusks found by visual surveillance (beachcombing by Amy Tripp) and the specific hunt for micromollusks (armchair collecting by Harry Lee).
