Cowrie Confusion

Just got my new issue of CORAL, and on thumbing through it, and being a malacologist by profession (at one time, at least), I first took a look at the article about Tiger Cowries. Unfortunately, the article is about money cowries… (or annulated cowries, it is somewhat difficult to identify the animals by the images in the article). That species has a list of synonyms longer than my arm, but the most recent, and probably valid scientific name for it is Monetaria annulus, Linnaeus, 1758).
