Abstract
    A re-examination of type material and literature has established the correct name for one rather common, tropical Indo-west Pacific species of psammobiid-Gari (Psammobia) radiata (Dunker in Philippi, 1845). Despite repeated misidentifications, the only true junior synonym is Psammobia denikei Martens, 1897. Resolution of the correct name required designation of lectotypes for Psammobia virgata Lamarck, 1818, P. radiata Dunker in Philippi, 1845, and P. denikei Martens, 1897. A description of Gari radiata is provided to distinguish it from the closely related, allopatric G. livida (Lamarck, 1818) and G. convexa (Reeve, 1857).
