Hi All

After a summer of dodgy shell collecting, Jack and I finally hit some paydirt,
(any dullness is condensation-we keep the zoila in the beer fridge)


Top RHS 65.8mmmm



Top LHS 65.4mm



Top LHS 68mm XL with great flaring and orange margins



Top RHS a nice Scarborough bi-colour 57.9mm
Bottom shell 61.8mmfrom Safety Bay and my personal favourite




Large and dark @ 68.2mm and small-55mm well coloured Scarborough shell-note exposed protoconch



And to finish off, top LHS XL North Rottnest venusta @ 73.8mm and a 71.6mm gem-Rotto "Ginger" and on the bottom a very unusually marked Rotto venusta-great spotting and purple extremities 68.2mm.

Congrats Jon,

Some fantastic dark margi's there, I'm happy the summer finally paid off for you. The ol' saying, patience is a virtue, can aptly apply to zoila diving.

Safe diving to you "margi' man",
regards,
Iain
