A Guide to Worldwide Cowries

second revised edition

by Felix Lorenz and Alex Hubert

Our idea was to revise the family Cypraeidae on the basis of the Schilder's work by critically evaluating all data available to us, trying to find a balance between the splitter's and the lumper's points of view. There are 600 pages and 128 colour plates in this second, revised and enlarged edition. Thousands of specimens are illustrated, the genera, species, subspecies and many formae are listed, explained and compared on tables. The book is available now. Here are three sample pages (click on the thumbnail).
