Hello dear friends,
It is very good that the forum is working again!!!
I have a question regarding Afrozoila fultoni.
What is the difference between afrozoila fultoni fultoni and afrozoila fultoni miniatra? Is it only the size or something else?
Here I have 2 afrozoila fultoni which are both from Nathal, South Coast, South Africa.

The first is 63 mm-

Hi dear friend, both are fultoni fultoni. There is no such thing as miniatra, as that name was an invention to market South African (nominate) fultoni fultoni after Raybaudi sold Mozambican fultoni amorimi massieri as "fultoni fultoni" opposed to the calloused amorimi. Please forget about miniatra - it is a superfluous name and should be abandoned. Like Mozambican fultoni amorimi, its form massieri, and all cowries, the South African fultoni fultoni varies in size. Recently, people tried to revive the name miniatra for smaller shells, but actually, small and big ones are found in the same spot, at the same depth. To put a name based merely on 1 cm difference of size is ridiculous!!
