I cannot find the species of the Strombus below. They are about 5 cm long and come from Indonesia.
Thank you,

Hi Pierre,
A could be Strombus aurisdianae L., 1758. B might be Strombus bulla (RÖDING, 1798), but I'm not sure.
Kind regards: wolf

Number 2 looks like Euprotomus bulla to me, I have one from the Philippines. And, for number 1 I'd say Euprotomus aurisdianae. You used to find them in souvenir baskets of shells. Hope it helps!

Best wishes,
