The subdual latticial cones in Hilbert spaces are characterized by the isotonicity of a generalization of the positive part mapping which can be expressed in terms of the metric projection only. Although Nemeth characterized the positive cone of Hilbert lattices with the metric projection and ordering only [A.B. Nemeth, Characterization of a Hilbert vector lattice by the metric projection onto its positive cone, J. Approx. Theory 123 (2) (2003), pp. 295-299.], this has been done for the first time for subdual latticial cones in this article. We also note that the normal generating pointed closed convex cones for which the projection onto the cone is isotone are subdual latticial cones, but there are subdual latticial cones for which the metric projection onto the cone is not isotone [G. Isac, A.B. Nemeth, Monotonicity of metric projections onto positive cones of ordered Euclidean spaces, Arch. Math. 46 (6) (1986), pp. 568-576; G. Isac, A.B. Neemeth, Every generating isotone projection cone is latticial and correct, J. Math. Anal. Appl. 147 (1) (1990), pp. 53-62; G. Isac, A.B.
