The American whelk tingle, Urosalpinx cinerea (Say), a gastropod enemy of oysters, has been introduced to Britain with American oysters and is now established in the rivers Blackwater, Colne, Crouch and Roach in Essex and on the Kentish Flats off Whitstable. Evidence available concerning the migratory powers of Urosalpinx is conflicting, but it is probable that migration is of local significance only in the spread of this pest. To infest new areas tingles or their spawn must be transported by… Expand
American (Urosalpinx cinerea) and Japanese oyster drill (Ocinebrellus inornatus) (Gastropoda: Muricidae) flourish near shellfish culture plots in The Netherlands.
TLDR
Two non-native muricid gastropods are known from The Netherlands since 2007, i.e. the American oyster drill Urosalpinx cinerea and the Japanese Oyster drill Ocinebrellus inornatus and the latter species from southern Europe has recently been observed along the western coast of Europe in areas of shellfish culture.

1. A study of growth and age structure in a Connecticut population of Urosalpinx cinerea was carried out using both shell length and weight frequency analysis. A cumulative growth curve is proposedExpand
Spatfalls of the non‐native Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas, in British waters
TLDR
The spatfalls which occurred in some coastal waters of Devon and Gwynedd in 1989 and 1990 are unlikely to sustain natural fisheries and are likely to die out as did the Portuguese oysters which occasionally settled in the River Blackwater, Essex. Expand
Present state of imposex in neptune whelk Neptunea arthritica inhabiting shallow waters around Hokkaido, Japan
TLDR
Female whelks showing severe imposex (Stage 3 and 3+) were restricted to large individuals, and the trend in the adult wheleks corresponded with their RPSI value. Expand
The American oyster drill, Urosalpinx cinerea (Say, 1822), introduced to The Netherlands - increased risks after ban on TBT?
A few specimens and egg capsules of the American oyster drill, Urosalpinx cinerea, have been found in the Oosterschelde, an area of shellfish culture in The Netherlands. Probably U. cinerea wasExpand
Freshwater immersion as a method to remove Urosalpinx cinerea and Ocinebrellus inornatus from mussel seed
TLDR
Freshwater failed to kill any individuals of either species, but did cause them to detach from the substratum for the entire time of immersion, so immersion in freshwater is therefore not recommended as a method to control the drills. Expand
Elminius modestus: Another Imported Pest of East Coast Oyster Beds
TLDR
It is now abundant in the estuaries of the Crouch, Roach and Blackwater. Expand
A Study in Erratic Distribution: The Occurrence of the Medusa Gonionemus in Relation to the Distribution of Oysters
TLDR
The outstanding peculiarity of this world distribution of Gonionemus is that, whereas the species occurs in both the North Pacific and the North Atlantic, it is absent from the arctic and tropical zones. Expand
THE ROLE OF INTRODUCED BIVALVE MOLLUSC SPECIES IN MARICULTURE1
TLDR
A code of practice for examining and effecting intentional introductions has been developed which recommends a combination of quarantine procedures and hatchery rearing to avoid accidental introduction of associated species and disease organisms. Expand
Foraging and Reproductive Ecology of Intertidal Gastropods
TLDR
It is found that egg capsules themselves provide little direct protection against predators, but the clustering of egg capsules in large groups does provide a significant benefit by reducing predation relative to uniformly spaced egg capsules. Expand

The Occurrence of the American Oyster Pest Urosalpinx cinerea (Say) on English Oyster Beds
IN NATURE of Nov. 5, 1927, one of us (J. H. O.) described experiments on the rate at which that rough whelk-tingle, which is abundant on the oyster beds in the River Blackwater, devoured youngExpand
Sex-Ratio in Urosalpinx cinerea, the American Oyster Drill
TLDR
The sex of Urosalpinx is easily determined macroscopically, for the male has a comparatively large curved penis lying behind and slightly to the right of the head; in addition the gonad of the female is yellow or orange, while that of the male is whitish. Expand
Habitats and Feeding Habits of Ocinebra erinacea
IT is well known that the rough-tingle, Ocinebra erinacea (= Murex), preys on oysters by eating them through a hole bored in the shell, and that it is also found abundantly in localities whereExpand
The Oyster-drills on English Oyster-beds
TLDR
There now occur in England three oyster-drills or tingles, which in the adult state bore holes through the shells of oysters—and other organisms—and devour the body of the prey through the hole made in the shell. Expand
The Habits and Economic Importance of the Rough Whelk-Tingle (Murex erinaceus)
TLDR
The whelk-tingle (Ocinebra (Murex) erinacea) was very abundant and very destructive in 1924–25, and it was obvious that most of the young oysters had been attacked in the early summer of 1925, since many of those bored had put on new growth. Expand

TLDR
In 1933 an examination of Peringia ulvœ for larval trematodes was under-taken at Plymouth, and the commonest species, Cercaria oocysta Lebour, 1907, were found in 75% of the largest snails, while the rarer species occurred most frequently in medium sized individuals. Expand
