Juvenile cones
Hi
These two cones are from Mauritius again.
I am not sure of their specie. Any help is welcome.

#1 - 28mm

Re: Juvenile cones
The second one looks similar to C. vexillum vexillum to me, especially with the yellowish tip, but I don't know if the species is common in Mauritius. What do you think, Pierre?

Best wishes for the New Year,

Emma.

Re: Juvenile cones
Thank you Emma and Bart. I already observed a few adult vexillum here so it match.
Pierre.
