Coral rubble. Intertidal. This is a very nice specimen Cypraea felina, this one is very nice! Nice color and pattern, measuring a good size 20.7mm and F++ condition, Super pretty specimen. Somewhat banded dorsum, some yellow in the dark dorsum coloration.

I have some doubts. Is this listeri? Der Fundort passt nicht zu felina.
