Included are Tricolia affinis affinis (C.B. Adams, 1850), T. thalassicola (Robertson, 1958) T. bella (M. Smith, 1937), Puperita pupa (Linne, 1767), Smaragdia viridis viridemaris (Maury, 1917), Littorina mespillum (Muhlfeld, 1824), Alvania auberiana (Orbigny, 1842), Rissoina catesbyana (Orbigny, 1842), R. bryerea (Montagu, 1803), Zebina browniana (Orbigny, 1842), Rissoella caribaea (Rehder, 1943), Caecum nitidum Stimpson, 1851, Marginella aureocincta (Stearns, 1872, and Granulina ovuliformis (Orbigny, 1841).

Descriptions were based on egg capsules from 10 spawning events.
