Dentifusus deynzeri, a new genus and species from the Philippines, is characterized by a cord-generated labral tooth, beaded lirae on the inner side of the outer lip, and a smooth columella. Despite the smooth columella, we assign this taxon to the Latirus group of genera in Fasciolariidae. The tooth evolved independently of that in other fasciolariid genera.
