Abstract: A population of Conus pennaceus Born was examined at
Hauula, Oahu, and was found to include darkly pigmented specimens referable
to C. elisae Kiener. The larvae from an egg mass laid by one of the
darkly pigmented cones were reared in the laboratory. Of seven surviving
larvae, six developed the C. pennaceus color pattern, while one developed the.
C. elisae pattern. It was concluded that Hawaiian cone shells which have in the
past been referred to C. elisae are simply rare color forms of C. pennaceus.
