The following shell came from Israel, the length is 7.8 mm it seems to be different from the brevis in the ovulidae book. (It was sold as prionovula fruticum)
What is your opinion?

This is Diminovula fainzilberi, a rare species endemic to the Red Sea

Thanks Felix for your reply, just a doubt that I hope you can dissolve, the number one was identified as diminovula fainzilberi, the number two (that I'm sending for the first time) is the same species or is it diminovula margarita due to the greater number of teeth?
The locality is the same (Eilat - Israel) also the dimensions are quite the same
7.8 and 7.5 mm



Regards

both fainzilberi. Number of teeth varies greatly, but they are stronger than in marginata. However, both are very similar.
