YOU KNOW YOU'RE A NEUROTIC COLLECTOR WHEN …

There are three stages of shell collecting: beginning, intermediate, and neurotic.
The last of these is the subtlest, creeping up on you when you least expect it.

You know you are a neurotic collector when
...

  1-You spent two hours cleaning a shell, then throw it away after discovering a pinhole in the spire.
  2-You get upset because Dolicholatirus cayohuesonicus is misspelled.
  3-You start checking inside the lip for defects.
  4-You consider it a personal defeat to buy a shell without an operculum.
  5-You prepare "Nomenclature Notes" for a dealers' list and actually have the nerve to send them.
  6-Your want list consists of 100 species, 99 of which there is only one specimen known.
  7-You refuse to buy any shells with just "basic data".
  8-You go through your data slips with an atlas correcting typos.
  9-You buy a new specimen of a particular species because it`s one millimeter larger than the one you already have.
10-You baby oil your fossils.
11-You order the same species from five different dealers because you`re afraid it`ll be sold.
12-You are surprised to find minor flaws in a shell you were convinced were "gem".
13-You do your best to get a color series of Voluta lutosa and a growth series of Marginella aureocincta.
14-You memorize the index of American Seashells (including the errors).
15-You prefer the term "fastidious" to "neurotic".
