Profundiconus robmoolenbeeki spec. nov. is described from material taken in 400 – 700 m depth north of Malaita, Solomon Islands. The radula and operculum of the new species have been examined and are consistent with the inclusion in genus Profundiconus. Profundiconus robmoolenbeeki sp. nov. is compared to Profundiconus cakobaui (Moolenbeek, Röckel & Bouchet, 2008), Profundiconus maribelae Tenorio & Castelin, 2016, and Profundiconus loyaltiensis (Röckel, Richard & Moolenbeek, 1995).
