 Ctenoides mitis (Lamarck, 1807), Abbott's form tenera (of C. scabra)

This shell was reported by Abbott (American Seashells 1974 - #5242a) as a form of C. scabra: "form tenera Sowerby, 1843 (non Turton, 1822)." Note also that Redfern (Bahamian Seashells 2001) in his updates considered C. floridana (Olsson and Harbison, 1953) to be a synonym of C. mitis.
