FamilyTurbinellidae
NameAltivasum flindersi - SUPERB GIANT , Verco, 1914
Size163.1 mm
LocalityAustralia
NoteSPECIAL GIANTS SALE: In this auction I am offering a special selection of giant specimens, all from the ‘old days’ of collecting, with many now being obtainable only from old collections. Most exhibit the imperfections associated with extreme age and size, whilst some are virtually perfect, but, in every case, they are offered upon account of their sheer size. ALTIVASUM FLINDERSI: Collected crabbed via a lobster pot, (as usual), but with a completely live-collected appearance, this magnificent giant is only around 15 mm under the current official World Record Size. The specimen is of high quality for this usually badly eroded and naturally damaged species, especially at this giant size, with spines and apex well-preserved. Fully mature, greatly recurved and expansive columella ‘shield’. Fully mature, recurved and glossed outer apertural lip. Beautiful subtle colour: pure white, with pale peach-pink spines. Size: 163.1 mm (length). Grading: F++. Data: Off Esperance, Western Australia, Australia; upon sand/gravel substrate; 40-80 m; craypot; 1998.
