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.
Shell conical, with short, scarcely stepped spire. The pattern consists of three bands of reddish-brown with a few white dots; the upper one is on the shoulder. Between these bands appear others of the same color but reticulated with white. Shell up to 22 mm.
