Info

Conus moreleti Crosse, 1858

Like all species within the genus Conus, Conus moreleti is predatory and venomous.

Conus moreleti is relatively common under rocks or exposed on hard substrates on both lagoon and seaward reefs. Living in exposed habitat in rocky areas usually causes the shell to become encrusted with calcareous algae and other growths, making it hard to recognize. The shell is colored much like Conus lividus and has a coronate spire, but it is considerably narrower in shape. The red animal color is another differentiating feature.
