Abstract
    The Atlantic species assigned to the genus Anomalisipho Dautzenberg & H. Fischer, 1912 are discussed. The status of the genus and the conchological similarities with species assigned to Helicofusus Dall, 1916 and the differences with Plicifusus Dall, 1902 are discussed. Anomalisipho virgata (Friele, 1879) is confirmed as distinct from A. verkruezeni (Kobelt, 1876), based on shape, sculpture, colour, periostracum, morphological characteristics of the operculum and the way erosion has impact on the outer layer of the shell. Buccinum brucei Melvill & Standen, 1900 is confirmed as a synonym of A. virgata instead of Retifusus latericeus (Möller, 1842). Fusus altus Wood, 1842 (= Trophon altum Wood, 1848) is confirmed as exclusively fossil. The species is excluded from the genus based on conchological characteristics that differ from A. verkruezeni, but no alternative is proposed, its placement being still uncertain. In addition, Anomalisipho martensi (Krause, 1885), a species that occurs in the adjacent Arctic Ocean, is discussed.
