Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Conus novaehollandiae is often regarded as a form (northern subspecies) of C. anemone. There are however constant morphological and habitat differences between the two, and there is actually a 600 kilometers distribution gap between the northernmost anemone populations and the southernmost novaehollandiae populations. Australian specialists treat the two as distinct species. [details]
