Comment from Neville Coleman: COMMON NAME: BROWN – TIPPED SPINDLE COWRY
SCIENTIFIC NAMES: Phenacovolva brunneiterma
REMARKS: Although I have never seen this species on the gorgonian fan pictured the mantle pattern is closer to this species than any other.
Species grows to around 30mm and has been recorded from Milne bay in PNG.
This is probably Phenacovolva weaveri
Thanks to Dr. Richard C. Willan, his comment: It is rather difficult to give names to ovulids without accompanying photos of the shell. Here are my guesses at names for the species in the photos, but I’m not an expert on ovulids.
