They had a little conchological
cabinet, and a little metallurgical cabinet, and a little mineralogical cabinet; and the specimens were all arranged and labelled, and the bits of stone and ore looked as though they might have been broken from the parent substances by those tremendously hard instruments their own names; and, to paraphrase the idle legend of Peter Piper, who had never found his way into their nursery, If the greedy little Gradgrinds grasped at more than this, what was it for good gracious goodness' sake, that the greedy little Gradgrinds grasped it!
The space of open sea running north and south off the west coast, separates two quite distinct conchological
provinces; but at the Galapagos Archipelago we have a halting-place, where many new forms have been created, and whither these two great conchological
provinces have each sent up several colonists.
In this context, this study aimed to i) identify the species associated with Fragaria x ananassa in rural properties in municipalities of Parana State, Brazil; ii) describe and illustrate the diagnostic morphological and conchology features of mollusk species; iii) construct an illustrated key based on these morphological and conchological
features; and iv) analyze two species collected in March 2017 to investigate the possible occurrence of parasitic nematodes of medical importance.
Identification of the species of mollusks was carried out according to external conchological
features (Stadnichenko, 2004).

To date, local studies have been limited to their focal biogeographical distribution, biodiversity, and inventory [14-17] and to snail identification using varied conchological
parameters and molecular attempts [18,19].
For species identification, conchological
and morphological parameters were considered, according PAHO (1968) and Paraense (1975).
It is also noted that conchological
traits alone are not always sufficient to establish clear boundaries between taxa .

A two-year study, led by zoologist Dr Ben Rowson from the National Museum of Wales and his colleagues, Cardiff University's Bill Symondson and Roy Anderson of the Conchological
Society, has discovered eight new species of slug living in the British Isles.
