Help id my shell - dancingdolphin - 03-21-2007

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.


Thanks <img src="images/icones/icon4.gif" alt="images/icones/icon4.gif" style="border:0" />

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.
