The cephalopod fauna of the Gulf of Panamá is reviewed, based mainly upon collections made by the R/V John Elliott Pillsbury during 1967. Records are given of 812 specimens, of which four species and one genus are new to science: Octopus selene, O. balboai, O. stictochrus and Euaxoctopus panamensis. Twenty-six species are now known from the Gulf, of which 11 are new records first reported upon here. The relationships of the fauna of the Gulf of Panamá with those of the eastern Pacific and southwestern Caribbean Sea are discussed.
