shell id help - thalassa - 03-29-2013

I found this shell today on the beach (aegean sea, Crete)
It's the first time I find one like this.
Can someone tell me what it is? It is about 35 mm long

Badongo is not available anymore so I put it on file dropper. I hope the pictures can be seen.

Must have to sign up to see photos as I only see their propiganda when I try the links.  In Flicker the photos must be public, same here??

Thank you, I didn't know where to put them.

Here is the link on Flicker:

This is a very beach worn pelican foot shell, Aporrhais pespelicani, a common Mediterranean species, but not found on the beach very often since it lives in fairly deep water.
