Hoping someone can id my shell, it's obviously muricidae, and came from the Gladstone region (QLD Australia). It's one centimeter in length and cream in color.

In spite of its small size it looks a lot like Biplex pulchellum (Sowerby, 1825). I think it may be a juvenile of that species.
P.S. Here's a picture of the mature shell:

Hi Paul
