Abstract
    Two new species of the family Muricidae are described. Chicoreus (Siratus) colellai, from off Veracruz, eastern Mexico, is compared with C. (S.) articulates (Reeve, 1845), and differs from this latter species in many aspects. C. (S.) caudacurta, from off Puerto Rico, is somewhat similar to C. (S.) beauii (Fischer & Bernardi, 1857), but differs in having a broad, paucispiral protoconch, a higher spire, and a shorter siphonal canal.
