Unknown Mediterranean snail
Hello again!!

Do you have any idea what this snail is and its family? It was collected at Les cases d'Alcanar beach, near Sant Carles de la Ràpita, Tarragona, Spain, on a pebble beach after a storm. It is 17.5 mm.

Hi, Emma!
Should be family Buccinidae; might be Cantharus dorbignyi (Payraudeau, 1826) = Pollia dorbignyi or near to this species.
Kind regards  Smile: wolf
