Abstract
    Cyomesus , a new genus, is proposed to receive four species of Turbinellidae previously assigned to Mesorhytis Meek, 1876, Teramachia Kuroda, 1931, and Benthovoluta Kuroda and Habe, 1950. All four species are reviewed, and a new species, Cyomesus aratiunculus , is described from near the Virgin Islands.
