  • ISSN : 0304-0798



Priotrochus iris sp. n. is descriptionbed from the coast of south-east Africa. It is thought to be more closely related to P. chrysolaema (von Martens, 1880) and P. goudoti (Fischer, 1878) than to P. obscu­rus (Wood, 1828), the type species and the only other member of the genus known from this area. Details of external anatomy and radula morphology are given.
