Conus (Lividoconus) floridulus: Conoidea: Conidae - JackSullivan - 07-13-2017

One of the many fascinating & intriguing aspects of cone snail shell collecting is their pigmentation. There are several parts to looking at pigmentation: color, pattern, mechanism & function. Having a background in chemistry, I have studied the chemistry behind many of the pigments found in cone snail shells. I can explain everything from red, to brown, to green & black. But one of the most difficult colors to produce in nature is blue. This is an absolutely fascinating topic to consider when you look at Conus floridulus.
