This is possibly a species of Nassa Mud Snail, maybe the species Nassarius crematus. It was found in the shallows above a sloping coral reef wall.
Image taken at night on the Lagoon Reef dive site which is part of the Small Deatched Reef system in far north Queensland in Australia.
Detached Reef's in the area are named as they are near - but not part of - the Great Barrier Reef system.
