Need ID (Conus gubernator?)

Need ID (Conus gubernator?)
Hi, can anybody ID this shell?
Is this a Conus gubernator?
<a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" alt="" style="border:0" /></a>
I got it in Zanzibar (Tanzania): it is about 8 cm in size.
Please need Latin and English names.
Many thanks in advance,

Conus striatus, the striated Cone. Did you collect it live? These are deadly cones, be careful in future collecting.

Hi Dave, many thanks for your ID.
No, I never collect alive specimens. This one - like many others I now have - were brought to me by some kids on the beach...
I have been living in Zanzibar for almost 5 years.
Ciao, cordially and many thanks again.
