Conus stercusmuscarum Linnaeus, 1758
Stercusmuscarum cone, 52mm

Conus stercusmuscarum is very rare in the Marshalls, known from only two specimens found in sand on a lagoon reef back in the early 1970s. We do not have a living shot of one of those, but figured is a similar specimen from the Solomon Islands.

Below is one of the two specimens found at Kwajalein.
