Tectus spec. - wolfi - 11-04-2015

Hi all,
I got here several specimens of Tectus spec.. Origin unfortunately unknown. Hight of shells between 29 and 44 mm. Might be Tectus magnificus Poppe, 2004?
Tectus fenestratus has no dark markings at the basis and the basis of Tectus conus is not structured with spiral lines and knobs, as far as I know.
Any help appreciated,
kind regards: wolf

Edit: I'm kind of confused now: perhaps Tectus virgatus??
