All are pictured on 44 plates with colour photos, the small species in SEM photos.

The general text gives notes about the physical characteristics of the area, the habitats, an overview of the local mollusc fauna, a general introduction in taxonomy and nomenclature, collecting, storing, and identifying. There are a checklist, indices for scientific and English vernacular names, bibliography, extensive glossary and a map of the area indicating the locality names used in the species accounts.
