This is a story of a mollusk type imaging project by the staff (including the StoryMap author, Yolanda Villacampa) of the Dept. of Invertebrate Zoology, at the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution. These type shells, collected in 1885 and 1886 from the Atlantic Ocean, off the southern coast of the United States, were published in 1927 by William Healey Dall, an eminent honorary curator of mollusks of the Smithsonian.
