Happy New Year

FROM: The zoological miscellany : being descriptions of new, or interesting animals. W.E. Leach. London 1814.

Left: Voluta Zebra
Ovate-Fusiform, volute, white inclined to yellowish; with longituidinal brown lines; pillar with five folds, the upper one obscure.

This shell, which is aptly named from its resemblance to the zebra horse, is a native of the New-Holland seas, where it seems to be not uncommon.
