Justification

This species occurs only off one island in the Philippines. There have been only a few collections recorded of this species. This species dwells in deeper waters so future coastal development may have very little effect on its population. Currently, the area is protected against fishing and collecting, but highly priced specimens of this species are still found on the collectors' market. It has a very limited distribution, with an AOO of 30 km2 and two locations, and there is a plausible threat from the continued collection of this species. However, this threat is unlikely to make this species Extinct or Critically Endangered in a short space of time. It is therefore assessed as Near Threatened, nearly meeting VU D2.

Threats

Major Threats

There are no known major threats to this species. As there are highly priced specimens available on the collectors' market, collection may be a threat despite the protected status of the area where it is found.

Wikipedia

Conus terryni

Conus terryni is a species of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Conidae, the cone snails and their allies.[2]

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.
