R.Mike Filmer is an eminent collector and authority on the genus Conus. After 35 years, during which he lived in Australia, Philippines and many other Asian areas, he has built one of the finest collections. In 2000, he published a book on the taxonomy and nomenclature of Living Conidae. Here you see a selection from his first conus to the rarer and challenging specimens in his collection.
