Conus cervus Lamarck, 1822
Cervus cone, 84mm

Conus cervus is known in the Marshalls from two dead and broken but unquestionable specimens found on the leeward seaward reef of Kwajalein Atoll. The shell is similar to Conus bullatus, but larger and thinner.

We currently do not have a photo of the living animal. The photos below show one of the broken shells. The view on the left image is from the back, opposite the outer lip, which was the best angle for viewing what remains of the shell's exterior. The image on the right shows the outer lip side, possibly broken by a sharp-jawed predatory fish.
