Anyone know exactly what species this is? I gather it may be an auger (family) or cerith (family) of some sort.

This particular one is native to Indonesia's black beaches.

I would like to know what is the genus and species of this specimen.


That is a piece broken off of a sea urchin shell.

Without it's spines, it's not possible for me to say which species it is.
