This cowrie was collected from dredged material at Jizan, Saudi Arabia on the Red Sea. Having trouble identifying it.

Hello,

It looks like the Cypraea turdus Lamarck, 1810.

RE: Unidentified cowrie
Thank you David.
I thought it might be Cypraea turdus (Syn. Erosaria turdus) but it does not have many spots.
