Abstract:First observations are reported of predator-prey relationships
among gastropod mollusks of the depauperate, Indo-West Pacific derivative,
intertidal and shallow subtidal benthic fauna of Easter Island. Conus miliaris,
which will be reported in detail in a separate paper, and Pisania decapitata
englerli prey on polychaete annelids; Mitraflavocingulata preys on sipunculans;
and Neothais nesiotes preys on barnacles intertidally and gastropods subtidally.
Gastropods of at least three species are eaten by the most common Easter
Island starfish, Astrostole paschae.
