I ran into a diver who found a Queen Helmet (Cassis madagascariensis) while diving on a 100' deep wreck in the Gulf of Mexico just off the Florida Panhandle (Pensacola area, I think). Neither of us thought that species ranged that far North? Has anyone else heard of this?

Take a look at the checklist form. Both the Florida Panhandle and Alabama lists include this shell. It is a common deep water shell off Florida's NE coast and see no reason why that wouldn't also be the case in the Gulf.
