Missing Cowrie Taxa

OK, we're getting down to the nitty-gritty. The list below includes all taxa for which we do not have genetic sequences. The database now includes over 93% taxonomic coverage, plus most described subspecies. In general, I follow Lorenz's checklist of Cypraeidae species for specific status. We are looking for freshly-collected tissue from these taxa to complete sampling in the group. See the How to Help section for more information, or contact one of us. We would be happy to send materials required for proper preservation.
