Join Project Noah!


Please submit clear and identifiable photographs and videos of mollusks, and supply their common names, scientific names, and pertinent descriptions. (If you can't identify an organism, the community is here to help!) Don't forget to specify the date the spotting was made, as well as its location on the map. Include links to authoritative references to make your spottings even more informative, and attach tags (keywords) to make the database more searchable. Thank you! Sign in to join mission

This Mission is the online repository of marine, fresh-water and terrestrial mollusks spotted by Project Noah members from all over the globe. Mollusca is the largest marine phylum in the world, with a "great range of anatomical diversity" (from Wikipedia). There are around 85,000 species of mollusks: from Cephalopods (squid, octopus, cuttlefish) to Gastropods (nudibranchs, snails); from Bivalves (clam, oysters) to other types of sea shells and worm-like organisms.
