Please identify these two "arabica"
Hi!

I'm not sure if this is a cypraea eglantina or arabica. It says eglantina but the base is very different with few very dark spots on the margins and dark base. I find it unique. 62mm from palawan Philippines.

I used a cellphone camera to take the pictures. The color is actually dark brown.

Also please help me identify this one. 43mm from the Philippines.

Hello !

The second one is a <i>Cypraea arabica </i>for me. The base is typically flat and colored.

The first one is difficult to say as it is subadult. it looks more like an <i>arabica</i> for me, but I am not sure !

Remember that arabica cowrie can be easily distinguished from <i>histrio</i> and <i>eglantina</i> by its base. <i>arabica</i> has always a flat base.
