Laevistrombus vittatus (commonly known as the dog conch or by its better-known synonym, Strombus vitattus) is a species of edible sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Strombidae (true conches). Known for illustrations in books dating from the late 17th century, L. vittatus is an Indo-Pacific species occurring from India and Sri Lanka to Melanesia, Australia, and southern Japan. The shell of adult individuals is colored from light yellowish-brown to golden to gray. It has a characteristic inflated body whorl, a flared, thick outer lip and a shallow stromboid notch. The shell is valued as an ornament, and because it is heavy and compact it is also often used as a sinker for fishing nets.
