Six species of cypraeid mollusks collected from the Korean waters were identified as Erronea onyx (Linnaeous, 1758), Maurita arabica (Linnaeous, 1758), Melicerona felina (Gmelin, 1791), Monetaria moneta (Linnaeous, 1758), Purpuradusta fimbriata (Gmelin,1791), and Talostolida teres (Gmelin, 1791). This is the first record from the Korea, providing a descript-xion of the species with illustration for the shell morphology. Including the present new records, the family Cypraeidae contained 11 genera and 20 species in the Korean waters.
