The Conchoid of Dürer also called Dürer's shell curve is a variant of a conchoid or plane algebraic curve. It is not a true conchoid.

- $2y^2(x^2+y^2)\; -\; 2by^2(x+y)\; +\; (b^2-3a^2)y^2\; -\; a^2x^2\; +\; 2a^2b(x+y)\; +\; a^2(a^2-b^2)\; =\; 0\; .\; ,$

Special cases include:

- a=0: the line y=0;
- b=0: the line pair $y\; =\; pm\; x\; /\; sqrt2$ together with the circle $x^2+y^2=a^2$;
