Abstract
    The easternmost record for a member of the genus Coccoderma so far was Lombok (Rensch, 1932: 118). Therefore, it was a surprise to discover among old, unidentified material in the molluscan collection of the National Museum of Natural History, Leiden, a tube with a single, somewhat damaged, but clearly unknown Coccoderma species. As most conchological features of the shell are still there, it is decided to give a proper description here. With the discovery of this species the distribution of the genus Coccoderma is extended for about 1000 km to the east.
