Abstract

Eight species of the genus Pseudorhaphitoma Boettger, 1895, s. l., are recorded from southern Africa and Mozambique; all are new or previously unreported. Type material of 22 extralimital species from the tropical Indo-West Pacific is also figured and discussed. New species: Pseudorhaphitoma sienna, P. drivasi, P. epistomifer, P. ethekwini, P. obturata, P. stipendiarii. New name: Pseudorhaphitoma thielei, for Mangelia (Pseudorhaphitoma) anna Thiele, 1925, non Jousseaume, 1883. New synonymies: Turrella Laseron, 1954 = Pseudorhaphitoma; Mangelia (Paraclathurella) maria Thiele, 1925, and Cythara deliciosa Barnard, 1958 = Pseudorhaphitoma ichthys (Melvill, 1910).
