EPITONIUM (Wentletraps)

A very unusual and delicate family with approx. 280 members. I did not realise how big this family was untill I checked for this data entry. Most are deep water dwellers and specimens are often found beached after storms. They really are beautiful with their intricate shell sculpture - a great family to start collecting.
