Range Description

This species is endemic to the island of St Helena (Monteiro et al. 2004) where it has been found at Lot's Wife Pond (Filmer 2001). The species was described in 1984, from a single site, Lot's Wife Pond, a rocky pool on the edge of the rocky coastline. It is only known from 'beach collected material', and hence the habitat and exact locality may differ from the place of collecting.

There is a recent report of a shell from Ascension Island, labelled as Conus jourdani, however the record has not been confirmed (M.J. Tenorio pers. comm. 2011).
