Hello,

I would like to ask your help, please. I tried to identify the next shells but I couldn't.

<a href="http://www.badongo.com/pic/1672425" target="_blank"><!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.badongo.com/pic/1672425">http://www.badongo.com/pic/1672425</a><!-- m --></a> ; <a href="http://www.badongo.com/pic/1672529" target="_blank"><!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.badongo.com/pic/1672529">http://www.badongo.com/pic/1672529</a><!-- m --></a>

The second is from mediterranean sea suppodedly. I thought it is a freak Conus?

And the next I think it is a Melongena but don't know which species.

Thanks,

The one on the left appears to be a Nassarius, but it's a bit different from any I have seen. Perhaps a freak Nassarius dorsatus??
The middle one is, as you said, a freak Conus, probably Conus ventricosus. I have a similar one, though the spire on mine is not quite as tall as on your specimen.
On the right is Trochus ferreirai  Bozzetti, 1996.

Not sure yet on the melongenid. If I come up with something, I'll post it.

Hello Paul,

Thanks for your help again.
Have you any idea about the Melongenid? (If we can identify them I able to get one of them.)

Regards,

Mark

Looks like a form of Melongena corona.
