Cordesia provannoides is a species of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Provannidae.[2]

Cordesia provannoides is the only species in the genus Cordesia.[1]



This species occurs at methane seeps in deep water off the Congo River.[1]

Larvae of the Cordesia provannoides, or a very similar species, has been collected 0–100 m below the surface in the tropical East Atlantic overlying a total water depth of 4570 m.[3]
