This species of cone snail is widely distributed through the North Indian Ocean, ranging from South India, to Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines. It is also thought to occur in Madagascar and the Solomon Islands. This species is wide-ranging and its deep-water habitat may offer protection from over-gathering. It was common on the market in the 1980s but is now scarce (Poppe pers. comm. 2011). It has been found to occur in large aggregations but there are no major threats. It is currently listed as Least Concern.
The size of an adult shell varies between 30 mm and 60 mm.
