    This is a beautiful, fascinating, yet vastly underrated family (IMHO!). Its 7 subfamilies and 90 - 120+ genera (depending upon who is doing the counting!!) make it a challenge second only to the Turridae in scope, and its nearly endlessly-variable shapes are a true Visual Treat. Every self-respecting shell collection MUST have at least a few of them!! PLEASE note that there are a good few unusual specimens here, as well as some lovely sets, which I think you WILL like!

Have Fun!
