Two new species of Spondylidae, Spondylus clarksoni sp.nov. and S. eastae sp.nov., are described from Western Australia. Additional taxonomic notes are presented on other Recent Spondylidae. Spondylus asperrimus Sowerby, 1847 is elevated to specific rank; S. butleri Reeve, 1856 is removed from the synonymy of S. longitudinalis; S. erinaceus Reeve, 1856 is relegated to the synonymy of S. gilvus Reeve, 1856; S. pratti Parth, 1990 is placed in the synonymy of S. pictorum Schreibers, 1793; a reliable locality is established for S. gravis Fulton, 1915; S. raoulensis Oliver, 1915 (July) is given priority over S. iredalei Fulton, 1915 (October); and S. prionifer Iredale, 1931 is redescribed.
