the second one I founded a year ago in a mud cole to the gulf of mexico in yucatan, I know is a mellongellidae but the colour and the wide of the shell is different to the atlantic crown conch
Hi Luigi,where is Quintana Roo, Caribbean or Pacific? The second shell is the West Indian Crown Conch, <i>Melongena melongena</i> (Linne 1758)Melongenidae. It is found throughout most of the Caribbean and brackish, muddy water would be just the place to find one.
Quintana Roo is in the mexican Caribbean, thanks
I agree with Paul.
I think the orange shell may be a juvenile Columbella mercatoria (linne, 1758).
