In a garden centre commercially available small shells in plastic bags labeled as “Nassa stuff” contained for the greater part Columbella scripta (Lamarck, 1822). But approximately 7 % in weight consisted of more than 150 other species. A complete list is given. From published distribution records it was concluded that these shells very probably had their origin in the Philippines. Remarkable finds were the recent (re)described Vexillum (Costellaria) vespula Turner & Marrow, 2001 and Conus (Lilliconus) trailli A. Adams, 1855.
