Hola my dear friend!
Such a beautifully executed close up of an equally beautiful marine gastropod in fine characteristic form Siegfried, however it does not belong to Aporrhais pespelecani, a member of the family Aporrhaidae, but to one of the Spider Shells, probably a Lambis truncata, a member of the family Strombidae. Both families belong to superfamily Strombacea, i.e., Aporrhais and Lambis are close relatives!

P. s.: You can see two views of an Aporrhais pespelecani in my gallery.
