The only problem with Thomson's work is that the book was released in (at least the edition I've read), and in a new species of ceolacanth was found in Sulawesi, Indonesia (quite distant Cited by: The book comprehensively describes and illustrates 60 species taxa and subspecies of living Cowries, collating shell and animal morphology with molecular data in its systematics.

A selection of fossil taxa contributes to the understanding of evolutionary history and the development of Cowrie shapes over millions of years.

Living Fossils “Living fossil” typically describes a living organism that looks like a fossilized organism but has no close living relatives by evolutionary reckoning. While dinosaurs no longer walk the earth (as far as we know), we can still observe living examples of animals and plants that shared the world with dinosaurs.

A living fossil is a species that closely resembles its fossil ancestors: it is a lineage that has experienced a long period of stasis. A famous example of this is the coelecanth (pictured opposite) - there are fossils over million years old that are very similar to the modern species. Dixon, R.M.
