The “Glory-of-Bengal” is a gorgeous cone species endemic to the Bay of Bengal and Andaman Sea, where it is moderately rare. Most similar to the other two “glory-of” cones, “Glory-of-the-Sea” C. gloriamaris Chemnitz, 1777 and “Glory-of-India” C. milneedwardsi Jousseaume, 1894; this species can be distinguished from them by height of spire (intermediate of the three species), being smaller in size (average size 100mm), more slender, and difference in pattern (intermediate size of “tent patterns” in the three species). Inhabiting water around -30~200m, it is a predatory gastropod like all cones. – Description adapted from Chong Chen
