    A new gastropod genus, Pterynopsis, is proposed for those trophonine species characterised by having a macro-laminated shell structure, a flattened aperture, and varices numerous on the earthly whorls but usually reduced to three in the adult. The type species is P. prosopeion, new name for Murex nysti Von Koenen, A., 1867, non M. mysti Rouault, A., 1850. The group first occurs in the Oligocene of Germany, and continued through the Pleistocene Red Crag of England, but is apparently now extinct.
