|Population:||This species is uncommon in deepwater in the Philippines (G.T. Poppe pers. comm. 2011).|
|Habitat and Ecology:||This species has been found at depths between 50 and 420 m with the latter being recorded off the coast of New Caledonia. It probably lives in sand and/or mud. Adults may grow to 50 mm but will typically be less than this (Röckel et al. 1995).|
|Use and Trade:||In common with all Conus spp, shells of this species are traded for the collector market. There are no quantitative data available on the number of shells removed, however, this species is traded for prices typically in the low range (Rice 2007).|
|Major Threat(s):||There are no known major threats to this wide-ranging species.|
|Conservation Actions:||This species would benefit from further research into populations, distribution, habitat, level of off-take and threats (including the impact of fisheries) before any action plan can be formulated. There are no known conservation measures currently in place for this species.|
