Abstract
    Three new species of the genus Solariella Wood, 1842, are described. S. quadricincta is known only from the continental shelf off northeastern Venezuela in depths of 26-86 m, and S. staminea is known only from the Davis Seamount off southeastern Brazil in 60 m; shells of both species are very similar to those of S. carvalhoi Lopes and Sa Cardoso, 1958. S. cristata is known from the upper continental slope of Isla Cancun, Yucatan, Mexico, and off Key Largo, Florida Keys, in depths of 155-256 m, and off St. Vincent, Lesser Antilles in 165-201 m.
