Die Flügelschnecken (Strombea) is a book written by Heinrich Carl Küster and published in Nuremberg, Germany in 1845. The book is a comprehensive study of the family of marine gastropod mollusks known as Strombidae, commonly referred to as "winged snails" or "conchs."

Küster was a German zoologist and malacologist who specialized in the study of marine mollusks. Die Flügelschnecken (Strombea) is one of his most important works and is considered a classic in the field of malacology.

The book contains detailed descriptions and illustrations of various species of Strombidae, including their morphology, anatomy, and behavior. Küster also provides information on the geographic distribution of these snails and their economic importance as a food source and a source of raw materials for the production of ornamental objects.

The illustrations in the book are particularly noteworthy, as they were produced using lithography, a printing technique that was still relatively new at the time. The lithographs are highly detailed and accurately represent the appearance of each species of Strombidae, making Die Flügelschnecken (Strombea) an important reference work for anyone interested in the study of marine mollusks.
