I will shortly be adding a comprehensive list of all the many museums, institutions, collectors and dealers who have sourced images or given me access to produce my own images.

Images of shells for which I would appreciate help in accurate naming - eg subspecies, forms and of course some for which I do not know the names at all!
Shells as yet unnamed properly 


Email me with comments, corrections, images, what ever - they are all very welcome :     Eddie Hardy (click and then change "-@-" to "@" to get the valid email address )
