Forty-one species of mollusks from the Panamic-Pacific faunal province are described. The following new species are described and figured: Chama corallina, Tellina argis, Terebra argosyia, Glyphostoma bayeri, Carinodrillia dariena, Engina macleani, Phymorhynchus speciosus, Austrotrophon panamensis, Natica inexpectans, Calliostoma pillsburyae, C. insignis, C. joanneae, C. decipiens, Turcica panamensis, and Pectinodonta gilbertvossi. One new genus is proposed, Bayerius (type-species, Fusinus fragilissimus Dall), and the new subgenus Cantharus (Muricantharus) (type-species, Pseudoneptunea panamica Hertlein & Strong), both in the family Buccinidae. Relationships in the broad family Turridae are discussed, and the radular characters of several genera are described and illustrated. It is shown that Strombinoturris crockeri Hertlein & Strong belongs to the genus Brachytoma Swainson and is a junior synonym of Brachytoma stromboides (Sowerby). Dall's Cocculina nassa is shown to be a species of Pectinodonta allied to P. gilbertvossi, n. sp.
