1" bumpy cowrie shaped shell, need help with id
Hi there, it is definately reflections on the side of the isabella. With such dark tips it looks more like Luria controversa to me.
Cassiaui is a subspecies of Staphylaea granulata from the Marquesas Islands. Tahiti is an unlikely locality but Marquesan shells are commonly found on dealers tables in the markets of Tahiti. Looking at the picture could it possibly be a worn Staphylaea nucleus?
Dave.
