Abstract
    Recent researches along the South Angolan coast has allowed for a better understanding of a number of taxa and populations of endemic cone snails, and brought to light some previously undescribed species, three of which are described in the present paper: Varioconus inesae sp. nov.,Varioconus medvedevi sp. nov. and Varioconus petuchi sp. nov. Additionally, a redescription of the taxon Varioconus variegatus (Kiener, 1845) is presented and documented with direct field observations.
