When I collected E. meleagris on the east coast of Florida in the 1970s and 1980s, prior to the invasion of what we then called N. interrupta, The meleagris was common in and around barnacles on jetties and other hard surfaces. These surfaces then became infested with stunted interrupta and the meleagris were either displaced or lost among the far greater numbers of interrupta. I found E. meleagris common northward to St. Augustine. The shells and records either went to Marlo or to the USNM in about 1980.

Getting close to finishing the Florida Littorinidae. These were added as hot links. Let's see if they work?
Cenchritis muricatus (Linnaeus, 1758)
Echinolittorina meleagris (Beck in Potiez & Michaud, 1838)
Echinolittorina mespillum (Mühlfeld, 1824)
Comments and Florida range extension information welcome.
