Abstract
    Two new genera of Muricidae are named: Pterymarchia n. gen. and Vaughtia n. gen. They include species formerly classified in Pterynotus Swainson, 1833 (Muricinae), Ocenebra Gray, 1847, and Urosalpinx Stimpson, 1865 (Ocenebrinae). Following new synonyms are listed: Tritonalia semidisjuncta Turton, 1932 and T. aedicularum = Vaughtia babingtoni (Sowerby, 1892); Ocenebra hayesi Lorenz, 1995 = V. jucunda (Thiele, 1925); Ocenebra newmanni Lorenz, 1990 = V. dunkeri (Krauss, 1848); Cominella fuscopicta Turton, 1932 = V. fenestrata (Gould, 1860); Purpura cribrosa Krauss, 1859 = V. scrobiculata (Dunker, 1846).
