Clanculus puniceus, common names the Strawberry top shell or Purplish Clanculus, is a species of small sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Trochidae, the top shells. The size of an adult shell of Clanculus puniceus varies between 13 mm and 22 mm. These small, robust shells are wide-conical, low spire and have a granulated coral red surface, with a pattern of small black and white dots. In shape, size, color, and sculpture, the shell of this species is reminiscent of that of a small strawberry, hence the common name.
