    • Hi, @joseph-dumont, excellent specimen! I agree that gastropod coloration pattern is a really interesting thing to think about. Would you be interested in adding in the higher order classification and maybe an image with a scale so I could validate your measurements? Specimens that meet certain requirements will be submitted to a data aggregator so that other interested parties can know about your specimen.

      For classification help I start with the iDigBio portal (many museum specimen records): https://www.idigbio.org/portal/records/1ce8ee83-73dd-4b39-998c-f3c019f00747

      • Added a image with a mm scale and updated information for this shell – Thank you for the link to iDigBio – added to my
        favorites link list.

        • Excellent! Thanks, Joseph! The iDigBio portal takes some getting used to but is a really powerful tool; I use it regularly for casual learning and for research questions.
