On an important collection of seashells from the Shetland Islands: part II, pp. 1-30, pls. XXXIII-XXXXIII, by Frank Nolf & Quinten Vandenberge.

Several Belgian shell collectors visited the Shetland Islands at the end of the last century. A lot of interesting deeper-water shells was obtained from scallop trawlers operating off Mainland in the Shetland Islands. A few shells were dived at Basta Voe (Island of Yell). A listing of the species is given and all of them are illustrated. Part II of this paper deals with the BIVALVIA and the SCAPHOPODA.

Keywords: Shetland Islands, marine MOLLUSCA, scallop trawling.
