Identification is verified by Scott Johnson, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Scott Johnson: This is a cowry shell with its mantle up. A piece of the shell shows in the upper right side of the animal, and from there you can see the two folds of the mantle meet just to the right of the middle of the shell.
