Conasprella jaspidea pealii is a subspecies of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Conidae, the cone snails and their allies.[1][2]

Like all species within the genus Conasprella, these cone snails are predatory and venomous. They are capable of "stinging" humans, therefore live ones should be handled carefully or not at all.

Distribution[edit]

This marine species occurs in the Caribbean Sea and off the Lesser Antilles.
