Abstract
    Three new species of Muricidae are described from the Gulf of California. Two species, Zacatrophon coani n. sp. and Z. scotti n. sp. are assigned to the subfamily Ocenebrinae and one, Nodulotrophon pumae n. sp., is assigned to Pagodulinae. The genus Nodulotrophon is transferred from Trophoninae to Pagodulinae based on radula characters. The total of extant species of Muricidae in the Gulf is updated to 98 and all are listed here.
