Justification
This species is found in Taiwan and Viet Nam. There is no population information available for this species. Although this species is not restricted in its range, market indicators suggest it is extremely scarce. It is not possible to determine its abundance owing to its deepwater habitat, however it may be at risk from excessive dredging and/or bottom trawling. Further data are needed for assessment. This species is listed as Data Deficient.

Threats

Major Threats

Although market indicators suggest shells of this species are extremely scarce, it only occurs in deep water well below recreational scuba depths where recovery will normally result from fisheries by-catch. Its abundance is therefore likely to be affected only in areas where there is excessive dredging or bottom trawling. However, the range of this species, although not 'restricted', is nevertheless not extensive and further research would be advised to determine the factors behind its scarcity.

Management

Conservation Actions

Conservation Actions
Although not classified as restricted in its range, this species is also not very wide-ranging but is very scarce in the market and would benefit from further research into populations, distribution, habitat, level of off-take and threats (including the impact of fisheries) before any action plan can be formulated. There are no known conservation measures currently in place for this species.

Wikipedia

Conus ciderryi

Conus ciderryi 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.
