Conus mcbridei Lorenz, 2005
McBride's cone, 12mm

Conus mcbridei is a very small recently named species that is locally common. We see them on the seaward reef front, usually on the flat above the steep dropoff at depths of 3 to 13m. The shell and animal coloration are similar to Conus sponsalis, suggesting that the two species are very closely related.
