Each species is illustrated in colour with many specimens, from the author’s collection, unless labelled otherwise. Other black and white illustrations, mostly in the text, illustrate some type specimens, while SEM photographs are provided for the radula and other details. Drawings or photos of the protoconch are provided for most of the species.
