Author's notes

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?

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.
