This page links to species in the family Columbellidae, commonly called dove shells, from Kwajalein. Most species within the family range from tiny to small. They are frequently highly variable in color and difficult to positively identify, making the names we use for local specimens often uncertain. There is much work left to be done on Indo-Pacific columbellids. (Click on a thumbnail for pages with larger images.)
