Item# 0002006206
FamilyVolutidae
NameAmoria damoni gatliffi - RARE; BIG; SUPERB , Sowerby III, G.B., 1910
Size98 mm
LocalityAustralia
NoteThis is the rare ?gatliffi? pattern, from the ?old days? of collecting. The name ?gatliffi? is now regarded as taxonomically invalid, although it remains a useful tool in identifying the sparse pattern of the form. Always with a few minor, natural growth interruptions and trawl damage, the current specimen is of high overall quality, with a minimum of such imperfections and typical smoothing to the outer apertural lip, carried out upon all specimens in the 1970s at the source. A product of the legendary 1970s Taiwanese trawling activity off the far Northern Australian coast, such specimens are virtually unobtainable now, coming only from old collections. Size: 98 mm (length). Grading: F+++. Data: Off Wadeye, (Port Keats), Northern Territory, Australia; upon sand/mud/rubble substrate; 200-300 m; trawled; 1975. Provenance: JES private collection; Melbourne/London.
