Specimens of an unusual species belonging to the family DRILLIIDAE were found in fairly deep water off the coast of Senegal. They proved to be different from any other species of West African turrids. Therefore, a new genus Trachydrillia and a new species Trachydrillia denizi n. sp. are created, described and figured.
