Cypraea is a genus of medium-sized to large sea snails or cowries, marine gastropod mollusks in the family Cypraeidae, the cowries. Species. Species within the genus Cypraea include: † Cypraea ficoides (Hutton, ) Cypraea pantherina Class: Gastropoda. CYPRAEIDAE. The most popular of all families, mainly because the shells are glossy, often brightly coloured and pleasant to touch. They are certainly among the most perfect aesthetic creations among marine animals. The majority of species have long-floating veligers, so that apart from a few groups, cowries have a wide range. The majority of species have long-floating veligers, so that apart from a few groups, cowries have a wide range. Such gave rise to a multitude of different populations and apart from the approximately valid species, several thousand subspecies or forms have been described. () Cypraea venusta Sowb.

The tiger cowry was one of the many species originally described by Carl Linnaeus in his 10th edition of Systema Naturae, and the species still bears its original name of Cypraea tigris. Its specific epithet tigris relates to its common name "tiger" (the shell however is spotted, not striped). This species is the type species of the genus Cypraea.

This book is a comprehensive treatment of the family Cypraeidae. species taxa and subspecies of living cowries, placed in 9 subfamilies and 49 genera, are discussed. The systematics follows molecular data as well as shell and animal morphology. A selection of fossil taxa is presented to understand the evolutionary history and the. For nearly years, every species in the family Cypraeidae was placed in one genus, Cypraea, but in the cowries were divided into many different genera. taxonomy [ edit ] The family Cypraeidae belongs, together with the family Ovulidae, to the superfamily Cypraeoidea. The subfamily Cypraeinae (family Cypraeidae) is a case in point 1,2. Linnæus's genus Cypraea, which forms the basis for the subfamily, contained 42 species. At present approximately are.
