last time I recieved several shells from western part of hesitata..from Portland
In Australia's Spectacular Cowries book p.345 fig.a there is a similar shell. They looks like beddomei variation from NSW, but comes from Cape Jaffa to Portland. Very poor colored and heavy shells

Most of the shells from this area were like this 84.5mm one



Couple were very fat, this one 90.4mm



and just one was big 102.4mm. This one bigger and more elegant that other, but also very heavy. Possible sexual dimorphic



I remember an arcticle about population of hesitatas, from Felix some time ago.

Hi, nice to meet you. Yes, they are very variable. I very hope that in the new book we will see a lot of umbilia variations! Winken

Dear friend from Russia,

AWESOME shell!!! What a shape! Thank you for the picture. I will send to the forum pictures with some of my Umbilias soon with pleasure. For example super small and dark, fully mature and fat, perfect Westralica - a jewel for me. I promise.

Warmest regards from Poland to Russia
Michael P.
Warsaw Sehr glücklich

aside from the location, how can you differentiate a regular armeniaca from the form westralica?

there is no such thing as westralica or southstralica. These armeniacas all come from the GAB and in one catch you get small, large, pale and dark ones

very strange, Felix. I can not see other photos I posted here before ;(

here is my smallest armeniaca westralica, dwarf 70mm. Common shape and pattern shell, but quite difficult to find such size and close to gem quality

Yes, it is mature adult shell. The smallest armeniacas I have ever seen was 66mm from GAB. I know that Felix has interesting variation from Rottnest islands that is also very small

and about armeniacas...
yes, there are many variations and most of them you can find in GAB.
For me, several unique variations (forms) are exist (exept usual armeniaca from GAB)
-brunnea
-dark shallow water from Esperance
-light colored deep water form from Perth-Albany

All of them are super rare...especially the second one. I remeber the article about armenicas...in it there were more variations..
