Volutidae
Aristocrats among shells: after Pleurotomariidae considered by all specialists as the most noble. Volutidae have exquisite shapes and select colours. There are about 280 species, many subspecies and a multitude of forms. Collectors of volutes enjoy the great pleasure to join about a dozen new taxa to their collection each year. Taxonomy is clear and the nomenclature stable.
