This CONCHOLOGICAL MEGADATABASE is the largest iconographic overview on mollusks ever made. As our knowledge, literature and science advance, it is evident that constant updates are necessary. If you refer to one of the images in your publications, the NUMBER is the constant feature not changing in time. Shells may change family, genus etc… as knowledge goes.

We started updating the database recently and you will get informed with this banner of recent updates. You will also be informed with our weekly emails about updates of important families. All images are copyrighted Conchology, Inc. Ask for free images for scientific publications by email to philippe@conchology.be, guido@concholgy.be or sheila@conchology.be. The same emails for important mistakes you may notice.
