I "PVDB" am a long time exclusive cypraea collector. One of my great pleasures is very huge numbers of the same species coming from the same as from different localities all over the world . This gives more insight to the relativity of normal variability , formae and subspecies of the collected cypraea .

Let the eternal discussions between lumpers , splitters , collectors and non the least dealers continue , I do not really care: if a cypraea is somewhat different from the other , my primary goal is to ad it to my collection.

Primitive art and ethnic jewelry are other of my compulsive hobbies
