(1) I was afraid you'd say something like that.
(2) I agree with the idea that two sets of
iterations (by name and by planche no.) would be useful.
(3) Interesting synonymy; the type figures of
Turbo turritella Wood, 1818/T. cornea Lamarck,
1822 look distinctive enough, but I can't say
I've seen a specimen quite like them or heard of the synonymy before.
PS to Alan Kohn [only if these analyses have been
parsed out already]: Of the 125 nominal species
of Conus proposed by Hwass (in Bruguière), can
you tell us (1) how many are available and (2)
how many were figured in the Tableau? HGL
PPS to anyone: Is any part of this masterwork available on-line? HGL
