Abstract

A new name is proposed for the homonymous Cerithium pulchrum Sowerby, and a Cantharus (Pollia) species from the Fiji Islands is described as new to science. The identity of Murex dentifer Watson, Engina contracta (Reeve), E. acuminata (Reeve), E. gannita Hedley, Phos pallidus (Powys), P. notatus Sowerby, Conus excelsus Sowerby, C. pulcherrimus Brazier, C. tannaensis (Cotton), C. moluccensis Küster, C. pulcher A. Adams and C. proximus Sowerby, are elucidated on the basis of their type-specimens. Cancilla (Ziba) bantamensis (Oostingh), a Pliocene fossil mitrid from Indonesia, is recorded living in the Nicobar Islands.
