Conus from Australia
Hello friends!
I have not been able to identify this cone.
Loadstone Reef, Qld, Australia
1-2m under dead coral rock
1. Conus suturatus
2. Conus sydneyensis or something else?

This is often shown as a form of Conus suturatus, though I don't understand why, as it is distinctly different from typical C. suturatus in several ways.  This shell can be seen in Manual of the Living Conidae, Plate 12, figure 5 and 6; and also in Australian Marine Shells, Volume 2, Plate 47, figure 3A.

Thank you Paul!
I bought it as Conus suturatus, but there were serious doubts as to its identification,
A typical Conus suturatus still very different from this Conus.
Maybe in the future it will be a new form Conus suturatus Smile
Best regards, Andrey

This is one of the forms of Conus suturatus. You can see pictures of similar shells from my collection on my website.
