Anyone know the name of this conch species? It came on some live rock I bought for my tank.

Hmm by the pictures I don’t know about a cowrie. It doesn’t have the tendrils around it when it’s out and moving around. It’s got a snorkel looking appendage like a nasarius snail and a very long narrow foot
