Abstract
    Monotypic genera Spiroclimax and Athleenia are later synonyms of Oceanida; type-species of both genera are identical to O. graduata, the type-species of Oceanida. All were described from the tropical western Atlantic. Oceanida inglei sp.nov. from Florida and North Carolina differs from O. graduata by lacking tabulate shoulders at posterior angles of spiral whorls. Differences between Eulimidae (preferred to Melanellidae) and Stiliferidae are unclear, indicating the latter should be combined with the former family.
