In a previous paper (Snyder and Callomon, 2010) the types of the fasciolariid species described by C. M. Tapparone-Canefri and held in the Museo Civico di Storia Naturale in Genoa, Italy were examined and figured. Here we review the material held in the Museo Zoologico de “La Specola” at the Universita degli Studi in Firenze (Florence), Italy, and select lectotypes. Peristernia kobeltiana Tapparone-Canefri, 1879 is here transferred to Benimakia and maintained as a junior synonym of Benimakia rubens (Lamarck, 1822) comb. nov. Fusus xantochrous Tapparone-Canefri, 1880 is here transferred to Latirus.
