Hello Dave,
              i think cerithium dialeucum is not what my specie looks like. i search the name you gave and this is what i saw.
              Here is the link :

              this one species more looks like the one ive post except the coloration is obviously different
here is the link :

Your opinion please.

The problem is is it too worn to give a positive identification. When shells get as worn as this the colours often change completely, that is why I thought dialeucum. Look at the bottom specimen on gastropods.com. The Clypeomorus would not have such strong ribbing to me.
