Any localities?  Some of these look western Pacific, others Caribbean, but locality would make it much easier to pin them down.

I think I think all but the last are tourist bags so my intuition is that they are of Filipino least the last that I send her a friend from portugal so I could be of the African zone of Mauritania or there but it is uncertain

1. Looks like a Latirus or Leucozonia, but can't place it.
2. Natica fasciata
3. Probably faded Natica onca.  Don't know what else they could be.
4. Oliva amethystina (formerly Oliva annulata amethystina)
5. Strombus (Canarium) labiatus and/or Strombus (Canarium) urceus. These are both very variable species, and can often look very similar.  But the simplest way to separate them is that the columella in S. labiatus is covered with cross-ridges along its entire length.  The columella in S. urceus is smooth.  Your second specimen appears to be S. labiatus.  In the picture the other three look like their columellas are smooth, but you can check.
6. Either Bursa leo or Bursa rosa. These are quite similar and this specimen is too beat up to be sure.
7. Babylonia spirata (Indian Ocean, not Philippines)
8. Tutufa rubeta
9. Mitra nodulosa (Caribbean)  <span class="petit">--Last edited by Paul Monfils on 2010-03-20 05:04:30 --</span>
