Abstract
    New material from the Indian Ocean yielded specimens with preserved limbs of a species belonging to a new genus, closely related to the genus Saida Hornibrook, 1952. The new genus is described in the present paper. Both genera are discussed, and the known species are listed. The subfamily Saidinae Aranki et al., 1992 is raised to the rank of family. The systematic position of the family Saididae is discussed and it can be concluded that it is a family in its own right, with a mosaic of loxoconchid and cytherurid characters. The (pa1aeo)zoogeographical analysis shows that the family has a Tethyan distribution.
