Four hundred and forty-nine specimens of 11 species of the molluscan genus Conus were obtained by R/V John Elliott Pillsbury expedition to the Gulf of Panama in 1967. Of these, 446 specimens and 10 species were obtained by dredge and trawl in depths between 15 and 210 meters. The literature on subtidal cones is reviewed, the ten species are discussed and in some cases the descriptions amplified, and Conus poormani Berry is figured for the first time. All ten species are illustrated, and the faunal relationships of Conus on the two sides of the Isthmus of Panama are discussed.
