Abstract
    Twenty-four species of Muricidae are reviewed, 15 assigned to Chicomurex Arakawa, 1964 and 9 to Naquetia Jousseaume, 1880, two closely related genera. Each species is listed with the author's name(s), the date of description, the synonymy, the chresonymy, the distribution, the description and some comments; the chresonymy is only cited for misidentified figures in recent publications dealing with Muricidae. Each species is illustrated in colour with many specimens, while scanning electron micrographs are provided for the radulae. Photos of the protoconch are provided for most of the species as well as the spiral cord morphology. The type locality and the type material (holotype only) are noted for each name. In addition, a molecularphylogeny of Chicomurex is reconstructed from eight species using three mitochondrial genes (cytochrome oxidase c subunit I, 12S rRNA, and 16S rRNA). The phylogeny revealed three wellsupported clades within the monophyletic Chicomurex, the grouping of species being congruentwith morphology (C. laciniatus complex, C. superbus complex, and C. gloriosus complex). Species sampled includes three recently described species C. lani Houart, Moe & Chen, 2014, C. globus Houart, Moe & Chen, 2015, and C. pseudosuperbus Houart, Moe & Chen, 2015; the specific status of these were assessed and found to be supported by genetic data.
