Abstract
    Relationships within the Tonnacea are discussed briefly; the Oocorythidae are confirmed at full family status. Oocorys umbilicata and O. bartschi clericus are described as new. The gross anatomy of O. Umbilicata is described. O. Bartschi is now known from throughout the Gulf of Mexico and northeast Florida, and the range of O. Caribbaea is extended from south of Cuba to the Bahamas. Hadroocorys , new genus, is proposed for O. Verrilli and O. Tosaensis.
