Abstract
    A revision of the terebrid genus Granuliterebra (Oyama, 1961), is carried out, a new terebrid genus, Pellifronia n. gen., and three new terebrid species, Granuliterebra oliverai n. sp., G. eddunhami n. sp., and Myurella lineaperlata n. sp. are described from the Vanuatu Archipelago. Conchological characters were used in the analysis of specimens gathered from two recent major expeditions to the Vanuatu Archipelago by the Museum national d'Histoire naturelle. A total of 106 terebrid species in the bathymetrical range of 0-200 m, representing the Philippines, New Caledonia and Vanuatu were used in a comparative study. There is a 65% overlap of the terebrid fauna found in Santo and in the Philippines and New Caledonia.
