This species is found from the intertidal zone to about 200 m and is reported from bare limestone pavement or sand, sometimes among weed or coral rubble (Röckel et al. 1995). Pacific individuals in 20-200 m except for a rare intertidal occurrence in New Zealand. Western Australian specimens are found in coral reefs and intertidal flats to about 15 m. Specimens from Oman occur in the infralittoral zones. East African individuals up to 70 m depth (Röckel et al 1995).

Conus lischkeanus

Conus lischkeanus, the kermadec cone, is a species of predatory sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Conidae, the cone snails, cone shells or cones.

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.
