Abstract
    Crassicantharus aureatus sp. nov., C. beslui sp. nov., C. boutetorum sp. nov., C. feioides sp. nov., C. letourneuxi sp. nov., C. magnificus sp. nov., C. metallicus sp. nov., C. nexus sp. nov. and C. perlatus sp. nov. are described from French Polynesia and compared to C. norfolkensis Ponder, 1972. Two more specimens are recorded as Crassicantharus species 1 and Crassicantharus species 2. The placement of Crassicantharus in Buccinidae or Fasciolariidae is questioned and briefly discussed.
