Juvenile cones - conchylinet - 12-29-2011

Hi
These two cones are from Mauritius again.
I am not sure of their specie. Any help is welcome.

The second one looks similar to C. vexillum vexillum to me, especially with the yellowish tip, but I don't know if the species is common in Mauritius. What do you think, Pierre?

Best wishes for the New Year,

Emma.

Thank you Emma and Bart. I already observed a few adult vexillum here so it match.
