NEPTUNEA


FRONTPAGE

The shell magazine ‘Neptunea

Neptunea’ is a shell magazine printed in A4-size, aimed at both beginning and more experienced shell collectors with practical information such as travel stories, book reviews, records of new species and other useful hints. The papers are illustrated with perfect colour photographs. From 2002 to 2005 papers were originally mainly published in Dutch but after receiving so many positive responses from foreign countries (i.e. Germany, Italy, France and Spain) we decided to use only English as current language. This allowed us to increase the scientific character of the papers and to publish descriptions of new species.

A few points of notice:

At present we are concentrating on East Atlantic marine species and new species are regularly described, such as Bolma christianeae, Bolma madagascarensis, Clavatula nathaliae, Clavatula quinteni, Clavatula xanteni, Clavatula matthiasi, Clavatula hattenbergeri, Clavatula congoensis, Diodora canariensis, Drillia katiae, Nucula mariae, Phenacovolva patriciae, Drillia annielonae, Clavatula knudseni, Clavatula delphinae, Clavatula pseudomystica, Conus trencarti, Drillia ghyooti, Glycymeris rafaelmesai, Pugilina dirki, Crassispira pseudocarbonaria, Europicardium nolfi, Anacithara biscoitoi, Clavatula christianae, Trivirostra leylae, Trivirostra matavai, Eratoena rosadoi, Alaerato elizabethae, Alaerato virginiae and Distorsio globosa.

New authors are warmly encouraged to provide us with interesting papers. We guarantee a fast publication (three to four months after delivery of the text). We are also prepared to make digital macro-photographs of your shells and to improve them if necessary. For more details we refer you to the ‘Instructions to authors’.
