Abstract: Ramphotyphlops becki (Tanner, 1948), restricted to Guadalcanal,
Solomon Islands, is resurrected from the synonymy of Ramphotyphlops willeyi
(Boulenger, 1900), from the Loyalty Islands, on the basis of consistent differences
in external morphology and visceral anatomy. New records of Ramphotyphlops
braminus (Daudin, 1803) are reported from Vanuatu and the Loyalty
Islands.
