Welcome to the Seashells Australia webpage.

My name is Trevor Sutcliffe, and I have been diving for seashells since 1958. I am one of the longest established and most successful shell divers in Western Australia, and many of the world's best collections contain specimens collected by me.

Western Australia is renowned for its endemic Zoila, which are my speciality, and it was recently suggested to me that I write an account of my shell-diving activities.

[ Book Cover ]

"Diving for Australia's Awesome Aussie Zoilas" is an account of my diving activities, from finding the first specimens of Zoila venusta sorrentensis in 1963; finding the first live specimens of Zoila marginata in their natural habitat in 1964; co-finding eludens in 1991; finding marginata orientalis in 1992; co-finding marginata lutea in 1993; and armeniaca at Esperance in 1994.

By popular demand I have produced a 2nd Edition and have only 16 copies 6 copies left after filling pre-orders. Price USD 19 plus postage etc.

Thank you for sending your book. Having read it cover to cover can I send my heartfelt appreciation. It really allowed me to connect with what it was like back in the day, and what days they would have been. Sadly past. It’s a great read and I plan to read many times. It was a great read. Thank you for taking the time to make it available to more than just family and friends.

I want to give my sincerest thanks to the author of "Diving for Australia's Awesome Cowries" for the beautiful words dedicated to me. I am very proud that many people from over the world can enjoy like me, reading about his interesting experiences diving for Zoila in Western Australia.

I received your Zoila book today. It is very interesting and exciting about your diving story...and surprisingly it is full of coloured photos for its reasonable price. Thank you very much for sharing "the Zoila history" with us.

Got my copy a few days ago and almost read it entirely without stop. Well done, and it will be of interest to all Zoila enthusiasts.
