Dear All,

I have attached a link above and I was hoping you could hel me identify this shell. I found it here in Marbella, south spain in the medditerranean sea. It is 9 cm long and it looks very old.

Many Thanks.

Hi Nathalie,

This is Mitra zonata  Marryat, 1818, a rather uncommon deep water species ranging from the Canary Islands to Morocco, and the western Mediterranean.  <span class="petit">--Last edited by Paul Monfils on 2007-06-24 17:34:59 --</span>
