I have a shell that looks alot like the cancellaria which is found- from what I read- on the west coast of Florida. The only problem is I found it on Hilton Head Island in southern South Carolina. It was dead and is a little beaten up. Around the tip of Florida and up to South Carolina is a bit far for a hermit crab to travel....so I have to ask : What is the most likely similar looking snail found in those parts that I am confusing this with? I'm sorry but I have no pictures to attach just yet. Thanks, Glenn

The common shell found in Florida is Cancellaria reticulata (Linnaeus, 1767).
The range for this shell extends to North Carolina. See Shells of Sunset Beach, North Carolina
