In deeper water feeding on sponges. This is Cypraea Roselli of the famous beautiful Zoila group. Not often available always expensive but a sensational shell. No chips no cracks no stress marks no water marks Gem. You will be extremely pleased with this shell

Due to location should be latistoma (sold as r. rosselli)
