165 species,27 subspecies and 11 named forms. As is the same with the other
volumes in this series there is little text except for a list of the family
systematics The high quality photographs, generally of several views of a
single species and variations within a species are what makes this a useful
reference guide. Each of the illustrated specimens are keyed by their
scientific name, and a reference to the size of the shell and generalized
locality information about where it was found.
