Abstract
    Two new buccinids from off Balicasag Island, the Philippines, are described as new to science Euthria suduirauti sp. nov. and Euthria rikae sp. nov. Both species are characterized by a striking subsutural band ornamented with small axial scales, a sculpture which serves to distinguish them from the sympatric E. walleri (Ladd, 1976), its closest relative. The placement of both species in the genus Euthria is based on conchological characteristics only, by comparing them with E. walleri (Ladd, 1976) and some New Caledonian species (Fraussen & Hadorn, 2003).
