Help with 3 Seychelles gastropods ID
Hello all,
Does somebody can help in identifying these 3 beached gastropods from Praslin (Seychelles). I believe they are from the Cerithiidae family and they are all about 25mm long.

Hello,

Acording to Alan Jarret, in hes<u>Marine Shells Of The Seychelles</u> book the n°1&2 shall be named as<i> Clypeomorus moniliferus </i>Kiener, 1841.
Shell N°3 is not illustrated in the book sorry <img src="images/smiley/smile.gif" alt="" border="0" />

Thank you David for these investigations.
I will focus on the Clypeomorus genus for #3.

Sharabati's Red Sea Shells illustrates three specimens of Clypeomorus bifasciatus (Sowerby, 1855), all quite different from one another. One of them looks like your #3 shell pictured here.
