Good day to you  Paul Monfils
and thank you kindly. I just started collecting and selling shell in the Philippine and am having a very hard time identifying them. I use a lot of sites on the internet with pictures but never find a shell identical to mine. Example the Arabic looks more like the Asiatic.
Thank you again for the help Richard.
Richard, try the website:  I am sure you will find it helpful.
Thanks Dave
I do use extensively and have identified many or most of my collection thru them. Also some of the Filipino fishermen species name and have helped with some.
Thanks again
