    Examples of taxonomic errors resulting from faulty interpretation of old figures are reported. Oliva caldania Duclos, 1835 is here considered to be a nomen dubium. O. brettinghami Bridgman, 1909, O. emeliodina Duclos, 1845, O. jaspidea Duclos, 1835, O. nitidula Duclos, 1835 and O. picta Reeve, 1850 are here considered to be valid names. Problems of synonymy are discussed.
