Justification
This species is found from the Northwest Cape (Western Australia) to the Northern Territory. This species is intertidal to 43 m. There are no population data for this species in the literature and it is considered to be not uncommon across most of its range. The frequency of this cone snail is not reflective of its price and presence on the shell market as only top-quality specimens are generally sold that command a high price. There are no major threats known to affect this species and much of its range is fairly inaccessible to most gatherers. There are no conservation measures in place for the protection of this species and it is primarily protected naturally by its isolation. This species is listed as Least Concern.

Wikipedia

Conus trigonus

Conus trigonus 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.
