Molluscs from the Madeiran Islands are well represented in our collections. The historical collections include type material from Lowe, Watson and Wollaston. Between 1986 and 2006 we acquired modern material with good locality data from the Holyoak-Seddon Collection, Professor Robert Cameron and Brian Coles. This material has being used in research publications on the quaternary fossil faunas (e.g. Cameron et al, 2006), as well as being illustrated for a field-guide to the identification of the land-snails of Madeira (Seddon, 2008 in press).
