In fact, Terebra guttata is often called "eyed auger", though that name is usually applied to a different species, Terebra argus ...

This is one more example of the confusion that can result from common names, which I addressed in another post.  If someone agreed to send you an "eyed auger", it might end up being either of these species.  But if someone agreed to send you a Terebra guttata or a Terebra argus, you would know exactly what to expect.  How many species do you have in your collection?  What is your favorite family or group of shells?  <span class="petit">--Last edited by Paul Monfils on 2009-04-10 19:20:38 --</span>
