The animal colour looks about right for Charonia but the shell is too overgrown for me to be certain

I agree with Jenny. I suspect, but cannot be certain, that it is C. lampas rubicunda.

    I am not sure if these are the same species. The last image is a large specimen of what I think is a Red triton, the other tw are so encrusted it's difficult to say whether they are Spengler's triton or Red, or perhaps something else?
