About this book

This is the first clearly written and fully illustrated guide to the marine Mollusks in the families Conidae and Conolithidae found in the waters off Florida from the shoreline to the continental shelf. Written and illustrated by long time cone collector and expert now retired from the Illinois Natural History Survey. It is a clear and concise guide to these shells with well written descriptions that include a listing the numerous synonyms for these shells and superb color photographs of usually several specimens of each species. Additionally there is an illustrated step by step key to narrow down the identification of each of these shells. In all there are thirty species (including one new species) in The Cone Shells of Florida and three subspecies. Every one interested in Cone shells and Florida shells both amateur and professional will find The Cone Shells of Florida a tremendous improvement over the sometimes spotty and often inaccurate accounts of these shells found in other books.
