North Essex Hunter
I have examples from the red crag of both Neptunea contraria (L H Whelk) and it's opposite number Neptunea despecta decemcostata (R H Whelk).
Edit: have I made an ID error with scientific name for R H Whelk?
Am I correct in making the assumption that the later grows to a much larger size and is in general less abundant than the former?
Also is there a photographic guide to red crag fossils?
Many thanks
Lee

Hi Lee, not sureon Neptunia, but although it's not photographic I would  go for British Caenoozoic fossils (NHM) as a good basic guide.

Thanks, I am using this book but line drawings as good as they are don't always give me a positive I'd and I'm certainly no expert at this
