 i bought this one on an amateur shell shop, is this cone really found in palawan?  

thanks again! =)

I believe the first picture is Conus obscurus. It does resemble Conus geographus but is a much smaller species, and has a smooth shoulder compared with the nodular shoulder of C. geographus.

The other two pictures don't appear to be of the same shell. The ventral view looks like Conus voluminalis, while the dorsal view appears to be Conus caracteristicus.
hi paul,

thank you very much..=)
