Thank you in advance
These are Conus abbas.
Thank you Paul,
      i'm happy to hear this.
What to you think about this 3, also from S.L.
                G.G.Duprét is talking about " conus canonicus " with white inside.

Is this " Conus canonicus " ?

    * Femorale also show canonicus from S.L.
I would say #2 was textile. #1 and #3 may be canonicus. They may even all be textile!
Note the netted pattern is much 'looser' in these compared to abbas.
Thank you Dave !

Probably all textile.
I agree, these are all Conus textile.
thx conpa !
Go with him, conpa knows far more about Conidae than I do.  Wink
