Conus coronatus Gmelin, 1791
Coronated cone, 27mm

Conus coronatus is abundant on intertidal interisland reefs and on some large flat-topped lagoon pinnacles in the Marshalls. They are usually found in or on sand in pockets in the reef.

This was a very small specimen observed with a number of others at night in a shallow reef quarry at Kwajalein.
