Abstract: ABSTRACT: Melanochlamys Cheeseman, 1881, long considered to be a synonym
of Aglaja Renier, 1807, is shown to be a distinct genus of the Aglajidae differing
from other genera in external body form, shape of shell, alimentary canal, and reproductive
system. Specimens of the type species, M. cylindrica Cheeseman, 1881,
are compared with M. lorrainae (Rudman, 1968), M. queritor (Burn, 1958), and
M. diomedea (Bergh, 1893).
It is suggested that Aglaja dubia O'Donoghue, 1929, A. ezoensis Baba, 1957,
A. henri Burn, 1969, A. nana Steinberg & Jones, 1960, and A. seurati Vayssiere,
1926, also belong to Melanochlamys.
