Mollusca Gastropoda Buccinidae Buccinum


Buccinum macleani n. sp., from off Fort Bragg, Mendocino County, California, is described. The new species is placed tentatively in the genus Buccinum (s.l.), based on radular characteristisc and shell morphology. It differs from all other eastern Pacific Buccinum by its very compressed profile.
