Justification
This recently described species is endemic to Senegal where it has been found off the coast of the city of Dakar at Les Almadies in deep water and at present it is only known from one sampling point. It is probably restricted to rocky habitats where it is found at a depth of 20-30 m, which means it cannot be taken by dredging or trawling, with powerful tidal currents making sampling by diving difficult (E. Monnier pers. comm. 2011). The only threats to the species are major pollution events and there are no known conservation measures currently in place for this species. As a consequence it is assessed as Near Threatened.

Threats

Major Threats
There are insufficient data available from which to make an assessment. It is less threatened from pollution, as the strong currents draw the pollution away from the site, however a major pollution event such as a ship wreck or oil spill is a possible threat.

Conus trencarti

Conus trencarti is a species of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Conidae, the cone snails and their allies.[1]

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.
