Hawaian shells
Hello again!

A few years ago someone gave me some Hawaian shells. They are all very small, and I haven't been able to classify any of them. Can anybody offer any suggestions?

Thanks!

Hawaian shells
1. Maculotriton bracteatus
2. Hipponix pilosus
3. not sure.  May be Glycymeris diomeda.  Would have to see a clear view of the interior, especially the hinge area, to confirm
4. Melampus castaneus
5. Same as 4?
6. probably Bittium zebrum
7. not sure, maybe a beach worn specimen of #8
8. Hipponix foliaceus
9. same as 8
10. Euplica varians (bottom); The upper shell looks like Subulina octona, a terrestrial species, but I'm not sure that's what it is.  <span class="petit">--Last edited by Paul Monfils on 2010-04-13 03:04:31 --</span>
