Abstract
    Eulima subcarinata Orbigny, 1842, is redescribed and transferred to the genus Eulimostraca Bartsch, 1917. The species occurs from the Caribbean and Yucatan to intermediate-depth shelf waters off Florida and North Carolina. Confusion regarding the species' identity is discussed. Eulima carolii Dall, 1889 (formerly affinis C.B. Adams, 1850, non Philippi, 1844) is considered a nomen dubium.
