Cypraea pantherina f. catulus Schilder 1924.
69.6 mm., Gem-.
Djibouti.
The interesting hybrid with C. tigris. Morphologically intermediate with a more rounded and inflated shell when compared to the nominate C. pantherina. Not commonly offered, this is a wonderful example. I am including a nice specimen of a typical C. pantherina for comparison (67.3 mm., Gem).
