Wonderful collection of NC stolida PVDB. I'm drooling. Mit den Augen rollen

I take it you meant the cicercula was a 'Takahashi' instead of 'takayashi'.
In any case, a very nice fresh shell you have there.

PVDB - thanks O. - Takahashi indeed

In Flanders/Belgium "we" (or I alone?) pronounce "takayashi", but I presume that is a bad pronunciation too . (like in the movie " the Karate Kid")

Thanks for the correction.

Will put more pics, after all I collect for more than 50 years.

And a request:has any one some ethnografic shell items to show? wealth , bride price, currency, a.o.?

BBG from PVDB.

Look forward to seeing more pics from your collection PVDB.

As a relatively newcomer to the collecting of cypraea it's always interesting to see what the more experienced collectors have. In most cases I've seen, specimens taken 40 plus years ago are slightly bigger in some species.

Really top stolida crossei, PVDB!
The largest one is really impressive in size and top rostration. Base view of those shells are interesting to me.
Thanks for sharing with us these nice photos.
I agree with Ozcyp. More photos will be greatly received and welcome.
Regards,
Beni Cool

Amici, reevei and notocypraea are of my favorites too.
They are never twice the same.


My apology for the bad quality of the pictures.
Sleep well and dream of lot of phantastic items.

IN fact, it is Pustularia tuamotensis ssp. takahashii.

That will be published shortly.

Nice set of stolidas, incredible what these Philippino guys produce these days.

PVDB, I especially like that bulbous reevei. Great collection of noto's also, they can be a confusing family at times.

Keep the great pics coming, muchly appreciated. Smilie

a few more papier maché freak albino cypraea aurantium from doctor Philip

The lower left one is a paratype made by doctor Jacko Senders,
the lower right one is another paratype made by doctor Felipe Martin.
At least one of the superior row belongs to the original catch.


And once again the striking colour contrast between the older faded paratypes and the fresh new ones.


Next picture 4 new species soon to be described,from a batch of 4, all different
kwajaleinensia fusula vera (by Felipe Vandenberghi)
kwajaleinensia glandina (by Philippus Delmonte)
kwajaleinensia aurantiaca (by Philip FromtheHill)
kwajaleinensia peudokwajaleinantica (by Moise DelaMontagne d'Anvers)

Great to see such a display of Kwajaleinensis PVDB. I spoke to a diver who gets to collect them a few times a year in Kwajalein. He said it takes patience and turning hundreds of small stones to find 4 or 5 of them.
I went through the same experience to find my local forms of brevidentata, extremely hard work, but I always smile whenever I open up the drawer and examine them.
