Conus ebraeus Linnaeus, 1758
Hebrew cone, 41mm

Conus ebraeus is an abundant intertidal reef dweller,where it lives under rocks and in depressions in the hard reef flat. Under the periostracum, the shell is white with black roughly rectangular markings. The black markings are less extensive than on the similar Conus chaldaeus.

They are often found partly buried in the thin sand coating over hard intertidal reefs.
