Five hermit crab specimens that lived in sinistral shells were recorded. Four were small individuals of Diogenes gardineri, one a Calcinus latens juvenile, all four in shells of the family Triphoridae from Okinawa, Japan, and one was a large male crab, Clibanarius vittatus, in a Busycon (Sinistrofulgur) contrarium shell from Florida, U.S.A.
