Abstract
    As part of a revision concerning the taxonomy and the systematics of the Conidae from North-Western Africa, the research reveals that the types of Conus franciscanus Hwass in Bruguière, 1792 and Conus lamarckii Kiener, 1845 are within the natural range of variability of C. guinaicus Hwass in Bruguière, 1792, and thus are conspecific with this species. Another separate species, usually admitted by authors as being C. lamarckii ("auctorum", non Kiener, 1845), and more often considered as a "variety" of C. mercator Linnaeus, 1758, remained without a valid name.
