Instructions for Contributors
I am actively seeking additional locality records for all abalone species. In oder to keep the quality of the data the highest standard I outline below the requirement for acceptance of records to this site.

Please provide an image of the specimen, either by e-mail attachment or by snail mail. Include with it the locality data with as much detail as possible. Of particular interest is, whether you collected the specimen yourself, know the collector personally, or obtained the specimen from some other third party. If the specimen contains the animal, either alcohol preserved or dried in the shell, please indicate so.

Please send the specimen by mail with the locality data. I guarantee return of the specimen within two weeks.

Provide detailed differential diagnoses of this specimen to other species, so that it is clear that the specimen has not been confused with any other species.
