Abstract

A new genus, Kanoia, n. gen., is erected for an unnamed seguenzioid gastropod species, now known from several methane seeps off California, in Gulf of California and off Costa Rica, and named Kanoia myronfeinbergi n. sp. It differs from K. meroglypta (n. comb.) a Caribbean species, mainly in having fewer spiral ridges on the shell, a lower spire and more distinct crenulation on the apical spiral cords.
