Abstract
    In the present regional monograph 848 specimens of CERITHIOPSIDAE and NEWTONIELLIDAE of the Shouji Tsuzuki's collection are analyzed. This work lead to the identification of 92 different species of which 21 are new to science. For 59 species the distribution range is expanded to Okinawa. 139 specimens are not determined to species level because they were only represented once and often were in bad condition. Fifteen genera of CERITHIOPSIDAE are represented: Belonimorphis (with 1 species), Clathwpsis (19), Granulopsis (1), Horologica (15), Joculator (17), Mendax (1), Marshallopsis (1), Ondulopsis (2), Oparopsis (2), Prolixodens (2), Retilaskeya (1), Seila (4), Specula (12), Synthopsis (13), Tubercliopsis (1), and two genera of NEWTONIELLIDAE: Ataxocerithium (1), Cerithiella (1). The new species are classified in Clathwpsis (7 species), Horologica (1), Joculator (6), Oparopsis (2), Specula (3), Synthopsis (1) and Cerithiella (1).
