Conus buxeus is a species of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Conidae, the cone snails and their allies.
Like all species within the genus Conus, these snails are predatory and venomous. They are capable of "stinging" humans, therefore live ones should be handled carefully or not at all.
There is one subspecies : Conus buxeus loroisii Kiener, 1845 (synonyms : Conus agrestis Mörch, 1850; Conus figulinus var. insignis Dautzenberg, 1937; Conus huberorum da Motta, 1989; Dendroconus loroisii insignis (f) Dautzenberg, 1937)
