WMSD - Worldwide mollusc species DB Bagni Liggia

WMSDB application is built around a MySQL DataBase; the entire DataBase is not available but you can freely download a subset of this DataBase for your personal use.

This subset is in Microsoft Excel format and includes 5 tables:

  • Family - one row for each valid Family (CODf is the code)
  • GenusSub - one row for each Genus and for each SubGenus (CODg is the code)
  • Species - one row for each Species and for each variety (CODsp is the code; if Validity=VAL the row represents a valid species/variety; if Validity=SYN this is a synonym of the shell having the same CODsp and Validity=VAL)
  • SinonimiF - one row for each synonym of Family
  • SinonimiG - one row for each synonym of Genus or Subgenus
