Conus kiicumulus is a species of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Conidae, the cone snails and their allies.[1]

Like all species within the genus Conus, these snails are predatory and venomous. They are capable of "stinging" humans, therefore live ones should be handled carefully or not at all.


The size of the shell varies between 30 mm and 41 mm.


This species occurs in the Pacific Ocean off Southern Japan and the Ryukyu Islands.
