The Epistopal Miter Snail (Mitra mitra) is popular among shell collectors but is rarely seen as live specimens in the aquarium trade. It is a large snail with bright orange markings on a white background. The shape is elongated like the miter head ware worn by Episcopal bishops.

These snails have a very long white proboscis (or siphon tube) that looks like the snail is eating a worm when extended.

While they will bury in the substrate and help aerate the substrate, these snails are not considered reef safe. They will eat some invertebrates like other snails, worms and bivalves and they are best not kept in a reef tank with similar inverts or corals.
