Although market indicators suggest shells of this species are scarce, it mainly occurs in deeper water below recreational scuba depths where recovery will normally result from fisheries by-catch. Its abundance is therefore likely to be affected only in areas where there is excessive dredging or bottom trawling. A number of the specimens on the website Conchology were found by being trawled by fishermen (Poppe and Poppe 2011). There are no known threats to this species.
There is one subspecies: Conus asiaticus lovellreevei G. Raybaudi Massilia, 1993 (synonym: Conus lovellreevei G. Raybaudi Massilia, 1993).
The size of an adult shell varies between 35 mm and 52 mm.
