Shell Taxonomy info?

  1. Sep 27, 2004 #1
    At school we've been given the identification of MANY shells as an assignement but we can't find good enough information in our poor books. Hence I'd like to know where I could find a good website about shells with ways to identify them (pictures if possible) and their full latin name (genre/species). I gave it a try on google but I can't find any good site.

    I don't know if there are any good websites, but you probably can find what you need by checking the library for field guides to shellfish.
