Good day!

I think your shell is an elongated Fasciolaria (Pleuroploca) trapezium Linné, 1758. Not a Whelk but one of the Horse Conch. It looks like one of my unusual F. trapezium here.. May I know where did you get this? and size? <img src="images/smiley/smile.gif" alt="" border="0" />


Hi, I answered your question in your first posting.
Cheers, Dave
haha! I saw it now Dave, I didn't saw it before.. Sorry Dlarsen5 but I think Dave was right and I'm wrong..

Can you post a photo of your trapezium here Rafael? How big is it?
