The shells studied here were collected over two expeditions to Papua-New Guinea. In all, more than 3400 specimens were collected, of which there were 184 species. Of these 67 were not previously described and, 117 proved to be range extensions for previously known species. This is a thorough report. The specimens were taken from my localities off the coast of the mainland and many of its' outlying islands. Collecting stations consisted of both shallow and deep-water stations.
