conus or turrids? - diocrisseashells1000 - 01-25-2012

Hello collectors,
i had this two species but i dont know where to put this, looks like a conus but i doubt the sizes its just 9-9.5 mm. from Philippines

any info about their specie name and family would be a great help, and are they different specie?
kind regards,

The black one is Lovellona atramentosa, Turridae.  The other one is not as typical in color and markings, but is probably the same species.

I thought the brown one is a conus but as i google your id it was confirmed as turrid too. Many thanks again for your help.
