Abstract
    The description of C. safagae is based on three specimens collected alive in the Red Sea near the city of Safaga, Egypt. This species resembles other lamellariid species in having five dorsal bosses (Chelyonotus tonganus (Quoy & Gaimard, 1825); Chelyonotus semperi (Bergh, 1886) and Coriocella hibyae Wellens, 1991) but differs by the body form, the aspect and position of the dorsal bosses, the colour and the radula.
