What are the species of these 3 cone snails? These shells are obtained from the Philippines (Indo-Pacific Ocean Area)...

The shells are encircled for easy identification.

Bottom cones (L 2 R) are  Conus striatellus, Conus coronatus. I dont know the top left one.
Mitridae looks to be Mitra strictica.
