Abstract
    This paper deals with 37 species of carnivorous anomalodesmatan bivalves usually assigned to the septibranchs, originating from the Philippines, Indonesia and New Caledonia. Eight species are described as new: Cetoconcha boucheti, C. exigua, Cuspidaria morrisae, C. (Soyomya) clalhrata, Halicardia houbricki, Haliris leporis, My oner a rostra and Policordia olivacea. New names are also provided here for two species with preoccupied names: Policordia ivanovae, for P. japonica Ivanova, 1977, and Myonera alleni for Cuspidaria (Myonera) atlantica Allen & Morgan, 1981. A new classification of the carnivorous Anomalodesmata, based on F. R. Bernard's latest works, is proposed together with diagnoses of the supraspecific taxa and a catalogue of the living known species.
