Abstract: Sigaluta pratasensis, new genus, new species, in the family Volutidae
is described from the South China Sea, off Hong Kong. Phenacoptygma Dall, 1918
is removed from the Volutidae and placed in the synonymy of Surculina Dall, 1908,
which in turn is removed from the Turridae and assigned to the Turbinellidae
near Benthovoluta Kuroda and Habe, 1950, on the basis of its radula. It is pro posed
that the families Turbinellidae (olim Xancidae) and Vasidae be of coordinate
rank. A new species of Benthovoluta, B. gracilior, is described from the
Sulu Sea, Philippines.
