Information about Cypraea pyrum and spurca Habitat
Dear Fabio,

Thank you very much for your help <img src="images/smiley/clap.gif" alt="" border="0" />

It seems that you have a huge experience in med. cowries <img src="images/smiley/love.gif" alt="" border="0" />
Personnally I looked for them only during two months and managed only to find lurida from 0.5 to 25m of water in crevices and rarely under rocks. The Only pyrum I have seen where I dove(Var : Bandol to Hyeres) was really outstanding and was found fresh dead by my Cousin who owns a scuba center in Bandol Bay.
She found it laying on the sand by 25 meters near rocky crevices and posidonia grass. Though several specimens of spurca where found by their divers, still fresh deads laying on the sand by 20 meters of water. That's why I always thought that the habitat was quite deep. Have you personnaly looked for them in South of France ? if yes did you find some there too ?

Sincerely,
David

Edit : I found the article I made at the time on my Backup Cd rom from year 1999 wich was not online anymore : the specimen is really outstanding <img src="images/smiley/smile.gif" alt="" border="0" />
