Samples of living and fossil mollusca were collected in spring 1913 during an exploration along the coast of Tripolitania (western Lybia). The campaign was promoted by the Commission of the Italian Ministry of Colonies. Mollusca collected in the Mediterranean Sea in spring 1913, in particular along the coasts from Homs to the Tunisian border and at Tripoli and Capo Misurata. The spatial coordinates are missing from the original historical paper and were completed indicatively based on the coordinates of the locality after converting to actual name.
The data in this sampling event resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 16 records.
1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
