Cypraea id help
Hi,
 
I would like help for these Cypraea species too.
 
Is it a C. tigris? (cca 6 cm)

All of them C miliaris? (2,8-4 cm)
(I think sometimes I only hope with the small differents they aredifferent species)

1.  Yes, this is Cypraea tigris, slightly immature, as shown by the incomplete dentition and incomplete dorsal pattern.

2.  These are all typical Cypraea milaris, and all within the normal adult size range for the species.

3.  This is an immature Cypraea that has not yet developed the adult dorsal pattern.  The size, shape, and coarse dentition all suggest Cypraea errones.
