Unknown species Mexico

Unknown species Mexico
perhaps you can help me to determine the following specimen, found at the northern coast of the Isla Holbox, Quintana Roo, Mexico, dead at the beach (height 15 mm).
Thanks for your help  Smile: wolf

Hello Wolfi,
I think that is an Epitoniidae specie (maybe Opaliopsis sp. ?) but i am not sure.

Thanks, diocris,
I just thought of Opaliopsis opalina (Dall, 1927). Shape, sculpture, size and distribution/region might fit. Could that be right?
Thanks again: wolf  Smile
