Conus sanguinolentus Quoy & Gaimard, 1834
Sanguinolentus cone, 52mm

Conus sanguinolentus is a somewhat questionable species. It could be just a form of Conus lividus. We have kept it separate because there seem to be minor differences in the shell and differences in the color of the animal. Either of these could be variable characteristics of a single species. We have seen these cones under rocks on the intertidal reef and in Halimeda algae beds on shallow lagoon reefs.
