Gastropteridae sp. 01 is characterized by it's orange colour without any ornaments, and by its orange posterior funnel, in some specimens dark orange.
Thanks for identification of the specimens #1 and #2 to Dr. Juan Lucas Cervera Currado.
It was posted on 16 April 2004 at these websites as Gastropteridae sp. A  Family: Swainson, 184, changed on 28 August 2011 into
Gastropteridae sp. 01  Family: Swainson, 1840.
For some genera, such as Trinchesia was the alphabet almost through. I had to change the distinguishing alphabetic character into a number. I have chosen 2-digit numbers, even though '01' looks a little bit stupid, and now is only the genus italic written.
Maybe Gastropteridae sp. 02 is a variant with white speckles, and a translucent orange posterior funnel, I will keep them seperate for now.
