Abstract
    The taxonomic status of the members of the Western Atlantic "Oliva fulgurator-reticulans complex", the Eastern Pacific "Oliva spicata complex" and of some related taxa is reviewed. O. foxi Stingley, 1984, O. fulgurator (Roding, 1798), O. polpasta Duclos, 1833, O. scripta Lamarck, 1811 and O. spicata (Roding, 1798) are shown to be distinct species. O. spicata deynzerae Petuch & Sargent, 1986 is a distinct subspecies. The available type material of many synonymous taxa has been studied and illustrated.
