    The nomenclatural status of each of the Oliva names introduced by Linnaeus (1758), Born, (1778), Schröter (1782), Lightfoot (1786), Abel (1787), Karsten (1789), Gmelin (1791), Röding (1798), Link (1807), Fischer (1807), Montfort (1808) and Perry (1811) has been re-examined. Of the 88 names proposed by these authors 14 have been retained as valid Oliva names. We have been compelled to replace two well-known names Oliva vidua (Röding, 1789) by O. nigrita (Karsten, 1789) and O. tessellata Lamarck, 1811 by O. olivacea (Karsten, 1789).
