Zoila venusta

Zoila venusta is  a delicious  gem of the  West Australian Seas, a precious gift of nature for the shape, the colours and the drawings. I feel pleasure just to keep it in my hands. I would collect hundreds of them, but I compelled myself to be selective. Here a "best of the best" parade, picked up from my shelves: 4 roseopunctata (Hugh Morrison, Rob Clifton, Max Innes), 1 roseoimmaculata (Hugh Morrison) and 2 large episema (Peter Demertzis).
