Abstract
    The Cancellariidae collected by scientists working at the "King Leopold III" Biological Station on Laing Island, Hansa Bay, Madang Province, Papua New Guinea (PNG), have been studied. This material consists of 58 shells, belonging to six species: Scalptia crenifera (Sowerby, 1832), S. crossei (Semper, 1861), S. laingensis Verhecken, 1989, S. obliquata (Lamarck, 1822), S. vangoethemi sp. nov. and Trigonostoma antiquatum (Hinds, 1843). The collecting area was limited both geographically and bathymetrically, so that the results obtained probably reflect only part of the cancellariid fauna of PNG.
