The two are similar, but they are most definitely broken - just the end of the apex from a larger shell, no way of telling how much larger.  Could be from Strombidae, Turridae, Buccinidae, or other.  <span class="petit">--Last edited by Paul Monfils on 2010-04-24 04:45:16 --</span>

Hi lorquinianus,
The photo and the locality make me think about <i>Olivella dama</i> (Wood In Mawe, 1828).

thank you Paul!

I saw that maybe the rare forms are from a lentigo granulatus.

Have a Nice Day!
