Gastropods from Australia - conchylinet - 11-20-2009

Hello,
I need help to identify the shells below.
They are all from South-western Australia (i.e. temperate waters).
Sizes range between 10 and 35 mm.

Ta.
Pierre.

1. Bittium granarium

2. Bembicium auratum

3. I think it may be Natica phytelephas

4.  I believe this is a beachworn Cypraea comptonii, perhaps the form trenberthae

5.  Nassarius particeps  <span class="petit">--Last edited by Paul Monfils on 2009-11-21 07:52:58 --</span>
