    A new genus Reliquiaecava gen. n. is proposed for the species Leptoconchus robillardi Liénard, 1870. This new genus is created because the adult and embryonic shells and the ecology of the adult of the above mentioned species are very different from those of species belonging to the genera Leptoconchus, Coralliophila, and Coralliobia genera to which the species was formerly assigned in the literature. Probably, the two varieties described in the original description by Liénard, represent two different species.
