Expedition ‘INDIA-2002’ or the search for ‘Shells of the Show’: part II, pp.1-19 + figs. by Jean-Etienne Ghyoot.

In the second part of this travel story, we follow the adventures of three shell collectors down the coast of South India, from Quilon to Cuddalore, the final destination. They are especially searching for rare shells, such as Perotrochus indicus Anseeuw, 1999, left handed Turbinella pyrum Linnaeus, 1767 and albino specimens of other species.

Key words: South India, Perotrochus indicus, Turbinella pyrum.
