Abstract
    Carenzia is proposed for three species of seguenziacean gastropods, with Seguenzia carinata Jeffreys, 1877, as type-species. Carenzia carinata and C. Trispinosa (Watson, 1879) are redescribed and illustrated with photomacrographs and scanning electron micrographs. Carenzia carinatais known from both sides of the North Atlantic Ocean in depths of 1000-2000 m; C. Trispinosa occurs in similar depths but is restricted to the western side of the North Atlantic; C. Inermis is reported from off Oregon in depths of about 2000 m.
