Conus parvatus Walls 

( Fig. 7J–L View Figure )

Localities: Agatti, Kavaratti and Minicoy

Habitat: Sandy shores

Depth: 0.2– 5 m

Specimens examined, observed: 10, 38

Length: 12–23 mm

Remarks: Conus parvatus  was originally described as a subspecies of C. musicus Hwass in Bruguière ( Walls, 1979)  . Indian Ocean populations formerly identified under that name are now accepted as the distinct species C. parvatus Walls  , following molecular genetic evidence ( Puillandre et al. 2014, 2015, WoRMS). Prior records of C. parvatus  from Lakshadweep were by Rao and Rao (1991) and KSCSTE (2013) (see also Table 1, Addendum 2).
