This book is the first in a compendium series of digital images of Panamanian seashells from the forty year collection of James Ernest and Robert Iwamasa.
Each shell has been classified by their scientific names and where possible, shell descriptions, locations as to where found, and how collected are noted. Emphasis has been placed on the photography with many close up pictures showing the beauty, color, pattern or unusual structure the shells.
Robert Iwamasa was born in Watsonville, California on August 29, 1937. He lives currently in Midland Michigan with his wife Ruby. They have three children, Kenneth, Jonathan and Andrew.
James Ernest is a long time collector and shell authority of Panamanian Seashells.
