The paleo database lists all literature records of fossil Conus that have come to our attention. Each record comprises the following entries: species and author, record author, record date and literature citation of the record, epoch and subepoch, formation or group, country or state, geographic region, and location. Only those categories with information in the original record are listed. In general, the database contains raw data, that is the species and stratigraphic determinations are as stated by the original authors and have not been critically reviewed. However, in some cases where modifications of stratigraphic positions or species determination since the original publication have come to our attention, these are also given, in a row labeled 'Updates.' These include subsequent designations of epoch, stage, and taxonomic revision, and the reference.
