Identify conus - ishinoseana or orbignyi? - andrey - 11-10-2010

Hello all,
Please help me in identifying this conus.
Bought as Conus ishinoseana, but it seems very similar to Conus orbignyi

Philippines, 74 ??

This is Conus orbignyi.  Conus ichinoseana Has a nearly smooth body whorl with virtually no sculpture, and does not have nodules on the whorls of the spire.  The pattern of C. ichinoseana, while variable, is usually quite different from this as well.
