Justification

This species is found from the Marshall Islands in the north and the Solomon Islands and Queensland down to New Caledonia. Conus coelinae spiceri is found on the Hawaiian islands. Conus coelinae has also been found in the Philippines and Okinawa (Japan) and off the coast of Borneo This species occurs across a wide range and its shell is plentiful indicating reasonable abundance in the wild. It is therefore not considered to be at risk and it also occurs in marine protected areas. It is listed as Least Concern.

Wikipedia

Conus coelinae

Conus coelinae 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.
