I can't tell how small this is. If it was very small then it would be tempting to say Ocinebrina lurida, but the siphonal canal is open, which is never the case in that species.

So I am not sure what it is.

I think it's a juvenile. The shape and sculpture are pretty distinctive and I have seen specimens of O. lurida with an open canal.

OK, well I will agree with you then Phil, because I can't think what else it could be.
