The Trumpet Triton shell is long and tall. Its spire is pointed and is composed of constricted coiled whorls. The body whorl is greater in size than the spire. The columellar wall resembles a puckered lip. This shell's color is a creamy white with brown swells and crescents. Its aperture is a dark orange with white stripes between the teeth on the outer lip.
This shell has been used as a trumpet by Polynesians and in myth, the Greek god of the sea, Poseidon. It is also found in the story of Daedalus and King Minos.
Triton's Trumpet shells are found in coral reefs of the Pacific.
