I found these washed up on the beach after Tropical Storm Andrea June 7th. I know they are not Whelk or True Tulip egg cases. Does anyone know what they might be?2013-06-07 SPB  (6) 1024x768.JPG 2013-06-07 SPB  1024x768.JPG

At first glance, and with no reference material available, I'd say a species of Murex.  Where are you?
