Chelycypraea testudinaria (Linnaeus 1758). 74.5-126.0 mm, Gem-. Philippines. SIZE! Extremely heavy and callused dwarf along with a large specimen demonstrating the extreme size variation within this species. Great quality and nice color patterns.
Naria macandrewi f. eguttata Raybaudi 1979. 14.9 mm, Dead. Egypt. Variety with reduced white spotting. This specimen is a young shell and has been polished, which may also explain the color variation. Necessary for the study collection.
Zoila jeaniana sherylae Raybaudi 1990. 57.5 mm, F+/Gem. Western Australia. Attractive dark dwarf. A few minor sand grains in dorsum is the only thing keeping this from being a full Gem. Perfect terminals, very pretty.
Haliotis tuberculata canariensis Nordsieck 1975. 54.1 mm, F++/Gem. Canary Islands. This variety has been placed into synonomy as Haliotis tuberculata Linnaeus 1758 according to WoRMS. I will let the experts decide the name of this lovely specimen. Hardly available.
Homalocantha species set This lovely set of 3 specimens are of particularly nice quality for these very distinctive species.
