Looks like a Glyphostoma species. I'm not super familiar
with the genus, but it appears to be pretty close to
Glyphostoma rostrata Sysoev & Bouchet, 2001

The Western Australian Museum has been involved in a series of deep scientific dredgings down to a max. depth of 1000 metres along the South-western coast of Western Australia. The 2 specimens (most likely the same species) have so far unfortunately defied identification.
Please view the images & data posted here: http://www.seashells.net.au/ID-Request.html)
06_ID_request1: 23mm, trawled in deep water, central coast of Western Australia, between Geraldton and Carnarvon (dorsal and ventral view).
06_ID_request2: 26.7mm, same location (dorsal and ventral view).
If there is anyone out there that would be able to help ID these specimens even to Genus level, please contact me with your info. Your input would be most appreciated.
Please reply directly to email@example.com if you can help.
