Polynesian Shells
The Cypraea Erronea alisonea Burgess 1983



Withdrawn   The Cypraea Erronea alisonae - Burgess 1983 - is a member of the "teres" cowrie group.
Initially named "Latior", this uncommon species, mainly harvested in the Marquesas Archipelago, was only recently the object of a description by C.M. Burgess.

The Erronea alisonae can be mistaken for the extremly rare Erronea burgessi with which it cohabits and is differentiated by minute features only.
Both these cowries of the «talostolida» sub-type are presently some of the most sought-after shells by collectors worldwide.
