I'm conducting a small study on Erosaia Bernardi f.kingae and would like recommendations on publications and other reference materials that are available on this species. If possible, I need the material translated in English and a source to obtain the research materials. While the internet is useful most of the listed material is only general in nature. I do have the Smithsonian material along with the HSN information. Any information on collection locations or collection data, especially depth and biotype, would also be helpful.

Club Conchylia Informationen 39(1/2): Lorenz, F.: Notes on Pacific Cypraeidae (Mollusca: Gastropoda) collected by the MNHN, Paris p. 17ff has a comprehensive review and many pictures of var. kingae and bernardi
You can order the magazine from ConchBooks. They may have reprints also

Cheers F

Hello Felix:

Maybe this data is wrong or incomplete. It is labeled in an American Collection. I will give the complete info is needed by PM.

Hi All,

My kingae’s collection data is:

Pitcairn Is, Polynesia
Dredged at 250 m by a Research Vessel

Hope it’s helps...

How many specimens have ever been collected?
As fare as I know only this French research vessel collected many years ago... i’ll check the paper
A larger boat needed for such deep dredging.

Greetings from Sydney

Kornel

Thks in advance,

Hello Kornel:

No problem at all. Thank you very much.
Here I post some data of the shell I referred in my previous post:

"Erosaria kingae". 19.5 mm. South End of Pitcairn Island. Dredged at 55 meters deep on a rubble bottom from Verhoef´s yatch, Seacumber, June, 12, 1972. Marty Beals Coll." Legit. Beautifulcowries Magazine. # 7. December 2015. Fig. 2. Pg. 51.

I wonder whether is possible to determine in the case of this shell, "shallow water" populations and "deep water" populations (> 100 m) as we have recently learned about Naria englerti in the Pacific.
Best Regards,
BCYP.
