Snail identification

I have an unknown snail in my reef tank. It has a standard snail body (like a Nassarious, but without the breathing tube.) It is about 3/4 inch long, and gray. The shell looks like an afterthought. It is hemispherical, and only about 1/4 inch long. It looks like a little half round cap. Any ideas??
