Abstract
    Nine species of Muricidae are reported here from the Archipelago of Madeira (Hexaplex trunculus, Ocenebra erinaceus. O. edwardsi. O. aciculate, O. inordinate n.sp., Bedeva paivae. Muricopsis aradasii, Cytharomorula grayi and Stramonita haemastoma). Two of these species Hexaplex trunculus and Bedeva paivae, are new records for the Archipelago. Three species listed by previous authors remain doubtful records for the region and have not been confirmed [Muricopsis cristatus, Orania fusulus, and Trophonopsis richardi (=T. droueti or T. muricatus)]. The presence of Typhis fistulatus (= Typhis sowerbyi), once recorded from the Archipelago, is probably based on a misidentification, and is not accepted here. A new species, Ocenebra (Ocinebrina) inordinate, is described from the Island of Madeira.
