Is this a Cypraea Eglantina?
My Name is Tom and I am retired from the Navy and my wife and I  have been collecting shells for over thirty years.

<a href="http://mysite.verizon.net/respsmyc/extraveler/" target="_blank"><!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://mysite.verizon.net/respsmyc/extraveler/">http://mysite.verizon.net/respsmyc/extraveler/</a><!-- m --></a>

My first post, so I hope the link works.  It shows every angle of what I have listed in my collection as a Cypraea Eglantina.
My wife found a Cypraea Scurra in Hawaii and we cannot find it in our collection any more.  Is there any chance we misnamed this shell.  It's too cylindrical for a Histro or Arabicia.  I think it's too small and there are too many of the circular marks to make it an Eglantina.  Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.  
Thanks Tom
