Hello there,
This are two mitras need to id, anybody know the names ?

Here is the links :

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=";"> ... 607/&nbsp;</a><!-- m --> the size is 16.5 mm.
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=";"> ... 414/&nbsp;</a><!-- m --> this one is 20 mm.

The first one is Zierliana woldemarii.  The other is a puzzle for the moment.
Hello Paul,
              Many thanks in identifying the first one, i already put the label on it. any lucky guest for the no. 2,  please ?
could this no. 2  belong to this specie ? i just happen to view this when i was searching...

anybody,s  opinion will gladly appreciated. THANKS !

          <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m -->
I don't think this is Mitra litterata.  It doesn't have the typical form of a Strigatella.  On the other hand, it does appear to be an immature specimen with a thin lip, so perhaps.  I was wondering if it might be a small juvenile of a larger species ... Mitra cardinalis? ... or ...?
Hello Paul,
              i have here a juvenile m. cardinalis for comparison to my specie.
your opinion please.

Hmmmm ... similar, but not a match in my opinion.
ok, m. cardinalis is out, im out of option on what specie this might be, any suggestion ?

I would go with subadult litterata.
Hello Dave,
i dont know if it is sub adult, cause here in the Philippines the m. literatta are rather small.
here are some comparison :
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""> ... 057423781/</a><!-- m -->

i dont know the size of m. literatta in other locality, that is why i did not consider it as m.literatta at first. can this be possible that in other area the sizes might get differ ?
