Here’s a good one for the Recent muricid collectors out there, as well as fossil collectors from the Indo-Pacific region.
This small specimen is from the Miocene of West Java, Indonesia (Nyalindung, Sukabumi). I couldn’t find anything resembling it in the current version of my Fossil Muricidae Worldwide Checklist keyword search. To me, it looks more like an ergalataxine than a muricopsine. Unfortunately, it is somewhat worn, and the aperture isn’t complete.
Any ideas? I’d also appreciate any information on good — recent — literature sources for information on the Miocene of Java, Indonesia, since I have several other unidentified shells from here.
