Hi Felix, you have mentioned C. "ar"tuffeli in your previous post. I have a few good shells from JeJu island which is South Korea beach collected by author of the book "Mollusks of Korea" Mr.Min Duk-Hi
As far as know, C. artuffeli is listed as endemic shell from Japan only.

Hi friends, yes, artuffeli is in Korea also. Dr. Koh sent me images when we were working on the Ovulidae project. Caurica from Russia - fascinating.

Hello all:

I´ve never heard about caurica or another indopacific cowry from Russian waters. For sure we´ll get more interesting findings in the future in those still poorly known areas.
I´m looking forward to see the new book and I hope we can get this soon...
Well done!
Best Regards,
Beni Cool

Caurica from Russia - Non sence. Somebody dump junk shell back to the ocean. The were a few dead C. Turdus collected in dry dock while cleanining water intakes in the NAVY ships coming from duty from Dakhlak, Red sea in 1980s. So what? Russia is not motherland for cowries. That is why I am out of Vladivostok ,city just 20 km away from Reineke isl,few months every year for the last 20 years diving worldwide.

Hello all:

Just for curiosity, years ago, looking for cowries, I found a real Erosaria caputserpentis (dead found) in a tide pool. The specimen is now in my collection. Despite the gloss is gone the shell was easily recognizable and without holes or cracks.
But not, I still haven´t found a live population of these cowries!
However, I keep my eyes fully open. Never we know! Lachen
Best Regards,
Beni Cool

I fully agree with PVDB: it's better to wait and have a very satisfactory result.
There already are too many books and publications of others than Felix which were - clearly - done without the proper care...

Dear Felix:

The book is awesome. I am enjoying a lot. Seeing a lot of nice pics, including the animals, make my day (everyday) much better.
BRAVO.

Best Regards.

BCYP.

Volume 2 has just been released. Done. I hope the community will enjoy the work, which will hopefully revive the discussion of cowries on a new level.
