Abstract

Latirus vexillulum (Reeve, 1842), described without locality, is redescribed and reported from Caroline Island in the Southern Line Islands, Kiribati, central Pacific. Specimens of L. vexillulum found at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University and previously reported as L. amplustre (Dillwyn, 1817) are here distinguished from that species.
