unknown cone from Indian Ocean
Hello,
I need help with cone id.
It is from Mauritius and measure 34mm. Possibly a juvenile ?

Thanks.
Pierre.

I would say juvenile generalis.

Of course it is maldivus! Silly me, I am living in the past still thinking it is a subspecies of generalis   <img src="images/smiley/bof.gif" alt="" border="0" /> My apologies.

I believe it is Conus maldivus, which is very similar to Conus generalis.

Thank you Dave and Paul. I will stick with maldivus as I am not sure generalis occurs in Mauritius.
