Abstract
    Caelatura spirocordata, new species, is found from off the northern coast of Rio de Janeiro to off southern Bahia State, Brazil. The new species is diagnosed by 5 or 6 strong spiral cords on the body whorl which show almost linear rows of very small pits on their upper surfaces. Caelatura barcellosi, new species, is found in oceanic island and seamounts from Northeasthern Brazil. It is diagnosed by straight whorls, the presence of umbilicus, and 14-18 retractive axial ribs and sub- and suprasutural cords forming blunt nodules at their intersections.
