Abstract
    This paper reports on Muricidae originating mostly from the continental slopes of South-East Asia, New Caledonia and S. French Polynesia. The genus Daphnellopsis Schepman, 1913 and Latiaxis sibogae Schepman, 1911 are transferred respectively from the Turridae and from the Coralliophilidae to the Muricidae; Pterynotus cerinamarumai Kosuge, 1980 is synonymized with Chicoreus orchidiflorus (Shikama, 1973) and Siratus hirasei Shikama, 1973 with Chicoreus (Siratus) pliciferoides Kuroda, 1942. The following new species are described: Poirieria (Paziella) vaubanensis, Poirieria (Paziella) acerapex and Poirieria (Paziella) spinacutus (all from New Caledonia, 250-550 m), Trophon (Trophonopsis) minirotundus (New Caledonia, 250-350 m), Nipponotrophon regina (Philippines, 680-970 m), Typhis (Typhina) virginiae and Siphonochelus (Laevityphis) tillierae (New Caledonia, 250-430 m).
