Abstract
    Based on specimens from the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris, the drilliid genera Splendrillia and Plagiostropha from New Caledonia are revised, and information on species of these genera from other areas is included. A total of 18 species of Splendrillia are examined. Fourteen species are described as new: one from the Philippines and thirteen from New Caledonia (of which two are also recorded from the Mozambique Channel and one from the Philippines). Splendrillia disjecta (Smith, 1888) described from the Persian Gulf, is recorded from the Philippines. Splendrillia persica (Smith, 1888), also described from the Persian Gulf is recorded from New Caledonia. Splendrillia solicitata (Sowerby, 1913) described from Japan is recorded from New Caledonia. Splendrillia praeclara (Melvill, 1893) described from Bombay, India, is recorded from both the Philippines and New Caledonia. Four new species of Plagiostropha are described: three from New Caledonia and one from Réunion Island.
