It is really difficult to get an id on this specimen because it is so coated with coralline algae. The shape is certainly reminiscent of F. luteopictus but there are also turrids that are of a similar shape to this shell. If you still have the specimen, a photo of the other side would be potentially helpful.

I would say this is a turrid rather than a Fusinus.
