Abstract
    Morula martensi Dall, 1923 differs from the similar species Ergalatax margariticola (Broderip, 1833) by having a smaller, narrower and white shell. The species erroneously identified as Ergalatax or Cronia martensi (Dall, 1923) in recent literature is named here as Ergalatax obscura n.sp.
