The study of Triviidae from the Pacific and Indo-Pacific has continued since the most recent description of species from French Polynesia. In the meantime more than 50,000 specimens have been examined and identified by the senior author. Dredgings and dive collecting by Jean Letourneux and his team brought up several dozens of new shells. Among this material two new species were discovered which are described as Trivirostra leylae nov. sp. and Trivirostra matavai nov. sp.
