Periwinkle snails
« on: February 13, 2014, 11:14:43 pm »
Hi there,

Thank you so much for all of the great resources here! 

I'm writing with a request for 3 species of marine snails in the genus Littorina, and am including links to sites with good pictures (please let me know if these are insufficient!) of each.  The symbols are intended for use in a journal article and future conference/classroom presentations, though I am sure they will find much wider usage! 

1) Littorina littorea - Common periwinkle

2) Littorina saxatilis - Rough periwinkle

3) Littorina obtusata - Smooth/flat periwinkle

Thanks so much for considering making these!
Best wishes!
