Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"

GOOOOD morning to all Conch-Lers,

This is a question to our Marginellidae specialists, specially to Bob Lipe.

I received some Marginellas from an Australian friend that are not matching with what I find in Lipe's book and also in Barry Wilson's Australian Marine Shells.

I'd like to know the main differences between Marginella ventricosa x M. tricincta, and if possible to receive (or to know where to find) good pictures that help me to identify them. The first was trawled on mud in Phuket, Thailand. It has light gray color, a very small spire and four teeth.

The second was trawled at 20 fthms in Taiwan. It is also light gray, almost no spire and five teeth.

I'd also like to know where I can find pictures and more details about M. occidua.

If necessary I can provide pictures of them.

All the best,


PS: ecological question of the day - Can we consider as politically incorrect millions of people that let a wild horse kill a dirt bird, without saving the poor animal? Or they were just seeing a common act from Mother Nature that repeated several times in the last years? ;-)) just a joke by a melted Brazilian cheese head
