Has anyone ever heard of a shell w/ the name holimani in it. Apparently my grandmother disovered it and thusly named it.

I don't know of any mollusk with that name, but there is a Terebratula holimanni (two n's in the name). This is a brachiopod, a group of bivalved shelled marine animals commonly known as "lamp shells", which are not mollusks. There are thousands of fossil brachiopod species but only a couple of hundred living species.  I believe T. holimanni is a fossil species.  <span class="petit">--Last edited by Paul Monfils on 2008-05-14 06:45:58 --</span>
