    Three new gastropod species from the New World assigned to the families Muricidae, Columbellidae and Terebridae, are described and compared with their closest relatives. Chicoreus (Stratus) vokesorum, n. sp. , from the Bahama Islands is compared with C.

Columbella marrae, n. sp., from southwestern Panama, is compared with C. sonsonatensis (Morch, 1860) and C. fuscata Sowerby, 1832, and Terebra mugridgeae, n. sp., from the northern Gulf of Mexico, is compared with T. riosi Bratcher and Cernohorsky, 1985, T. petiveriana Deshayes, 1857, T. concava (Say, 1826), T. protexta (Conrad, 1846), and T. vinosa Dall, 1889.
