Let's Talk Seashells is intended as a resource predominantly for information related to Florida, Caribbean and western Atlantic seashells (many California seashells are also presented). All material presented on LTS may be freely used for non-commercial or educational purposes provided that LTS is duly credited* as being the source of the material.  Any photos utilized shall duly credit the photographers.  If the material is used in print media, it is requested that an electronic reprint be sent to marlo.is@yahoo.com.  Not all photo material on this site can be readily copied, so those wishing to use particular photos can email me for the original photo files.

This WIX website was created to preserve photo material from the old Invisionfree (now Tapatalk) forum Let's Talk Seashells when Photobucket announced it would soon curtail its "free" suport for image files used in websites..  As of mid-2018 Photobucket changed its policy and continued "free" support.  So, Photobucket material on the Tapatalk site will remain for the foreseeable future.  However, all "new" material is posted only to this WIX site.  We migrated all the photo-based presentations, but still link to the LTS Tapatalk site for some all-text material.  Much of Marlo's material was created in photo formats.  The photos are simply copied to this WIX site from Tapatalk and not edited.  As a result, some links in slides may not work (particularly slides in "galleries"), but look for a corresponding active link elsewhere in the presentation.

                                                       This Curator's Corner section is taken                                                                 from the newsletter of the BMSM, edited                                                             by José H. Leal, Science Director & Curator.  This section was created to offer a more extensive listing and insight on      LTS into Florida species than only those from Marlo’s collection, and      to provide an insight into the great work Dr. Leal is doing.
