the sound of the waves

the sound of the waves
1. Looks like a Latirus or Leucozonia, but can't place it.
2. Natica fasciata
3. Probably faded Natica onca.  Don't know what else they could be.
4. Oliva amethystina (formerly Oliva annulata amethystina)
5. Strombus (Canarium) labiatus and/or Strombus (Canarium) urceus. These are both very variable species, and can often look very similar.  But the simplest way to separate them is that the columella in S. labiatus is covered with cross-ridges along its entire length.  The columella in S. urceus is smooth.  Your second specimen appears to be S. labiatus.  In the picture the other three look like their columellas are smooth, but you can check.
6. Either Bursa leo or Bursa rosa. These are quite similar and this specimen is too beat up to be sure.
7. Babylonia spirata (Indian Ocean, not Philippines)
8. Tutufa rubeta
9. Mitra nodulosa (Caribbean)  <span class="petit">--Last edited by Paul Monfils on 2010-03-20 05:04:30 --</span>
