Hi,
#1 is Donax faba (Gmelin, 1791)
#2 I dont know (a Purpura or a Thais), an aperture view could be helpful
#3 is Modulus obtusatus (Philippi 1846)
#4 is Codakia tigerina (Linne 1758)

Hi ale.v, it may be too late to take part in this discussion but your #2 is a juvenile of Purpura persica and I would rather say #3 is a Modulus tectum although obtusatus could be a synonym of tectum.

Thank you matthias.

Do you know how many different Purpura live in the Seychelles?
