IMAGES FROM MALACOLOGY

COMPENDIUM OF MOLLUSCS PRESERVED IN MUSEUM COLLECTIONS
PHOTOGRAPHS AND LAYOUT BY JOOP TRAUSEL & FRANS SLIEKER



Nspirula



After nearly fifteen years of photographing and presenting mollusks on our photo pages, a number of innovations have recently been made to the site.
You will find options to retrieve species by search engines on both marine and non-marine species.
The search results in themselves provide a redirect to the relevant family.

An important addition is the ability to access the relevant taxonomic data at the World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS) via a link below each image.

Links to the family photo pages are shown in the left window.

The actual sizes of specimens can refer to either greatest width, length or height.

Questions or comments are always welcome at info@malacopics.nl

Acronyms used in the images can be found here.
