Conus glans Hwass in Bruguière, 1792
Like all species within the genus Conus, the Acorn Cone is predatory and venomous. The shell is encircled throughout with coarse or fine striae, which are sometimes granular.
Similar to Conus tenuistriatus, but that species is usually gray-brown, is smaller in size, and has much finer spiral striations across the shell.
