I'm not sure if this shells are " abbas, or textile sp. "

Thank you in advance


Re: Conus ID - paul monfils - 03-13-2012

These are Conus abbas.


Re: Sri Lanka - Conus ID - helmetapointe - 03-14-2012

Thank you Paul,
      i'm happy to hear this.
What to you think about this 3, also from S.L.
                G.G.Duprét is talking about " conus canonicus " with white inside.

Is this " Conus canonicus " ?

    * Femorale also show canonicus from S.L.


Re: Conus ID - dave r - 03-14-2012

I would say #2 was textile. #1 and #3 may be canonicus. They may even all be textile!
Note the netted pattern is much 'looser' in these compared to abbas.

Thank you Dave !

Probably all textile.


Re: Conus ID - conpa - 03-17-2012

I agree, these are all Conus textile.


Re: Conus ID - helmetapointe - 03-18-2012
