Justification

This species is widely distributed in three separate population groups: 1) Southeast India and Sri Lanka, 2) Western Thailand, and 3) The Philippines. It is very abundant on deep fine mud bottoms (150-280 m) in the Philippines, and there are no known threats. It is therefore listed as Least Concern.

Wikipedia

Conus vimineus

Conus vimineus 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.
