Spiny Murex? Bursa Perelegans?
Hi!
Thank you in advance for helping me identify these shells
My best guess is first two rows Spiny Murex??--but last one in row 2 is white so not sure about that one. And third row is bursa perelegans?
Thank you for your time

The first two rows are one of the species of the "spiny murex" group. These are Murex trapa, probably from Taiwan.

The Bursa specimens are of two species. #3-5-7 are Bursa (Bufonaria) echinata, which is quite similar to Bursa perelegans. The rest are Bursa (Bufonaria) crumena.
