Hello,
I need help with the specie below, even the family would be welcome. It is from Mauritius and the length of the piece is 19mm.

Thanks.

Not really enough there to identify, possibly Turritellidae? or maybe even Terebridae.

Perhaps a piece of a Terebra funiculata.  The two strong spiral cords close together are an unusual characteristic of that species, and it is found in Mauritius.

Thanks Dave and Paul. The id. T. funiculata is satisfying. I hope to find a better shaped one later.
