PLease help identify shell
HI! I found this shell in the internet and it is labeled cypraea armeniaca 50mm. Of course it is not armeniaca but what is it?

I did some research. Is it a cypraea lynx vanelli?  <img src="images/smiley/dingo.gif" alt="" border="0" />

Looks to me like an ordinary Cypraea lynx, badly faded and no doubt beach collected.  The "vanelli" form is more elongate.
