Abstract
    The newly described species is very close to Axelella nodosivaricosa (PETOCH, 1979) and occurs off Japan and the Philippines; in the latter locality both species are sympatric. The differentiation is mainly based on the multispiral protoconch of the newly described species versus the paucispiral protoconch of A.. nodosivaricosa, and on biometric data. The related A. semipellucida (ADAMS & REEVE, 1850) is also discussed.
