Is this a juvenile Cyphoma gibbosum?

Whow, this is a species of the genus Cymbovula, and most probably something new... I have never seen this mantle-pattern. Did you keep the shell by any chance?

Unfortunately, I just have the photo. OK, a Cymbovula sp. for now. Thanks!

Given the ID of the above photo as a Cymbovula, I'm no longer sure I can distinguish between a juvenile Cyphoma gibbosum and a Cymbovula sp., and have to question some of my previous IDs. For example, I had identified the following as juvenile Cyphoma gibbosum. Are they?







Thanks.

the first (initial) shell has what appears to be a thickened labral margin and also a slightly curled posterior, both of which is typical of Cymbovula. However, I cannot go in depth on this without the shell in hands so this case may remain a mystery if you will
