Abstract

The genera of the Cingulopsidae (= Coriandriidae Nordsieck and Eatoninidae Golikov & Starobogatov) are reviewed and 30 species and subspecies are described from Australia and the tropical Indo-West Pacific, 24 of them new. Four genera are recognised in the family. Eatonina Thiele, 1912 has 5 subgenera; Eatonina s.s. (= Saginofusca Ponder, 1965) with 15 species and subspecies, Coriandria Tomlin, 1917 (= Cingulopsis Fretter & Patil, 1958 and probably Globisetia Nordsieck, 1972) with 2 species, Otatara Ponder, 1965 and Mistostigma Berry, 1947 with no Australian species and Captitonia nov. with 1 species. Eatoniopsis Thiele, 1912 has 4 subgenera; Eatoniopsis s.s. with no Australian species, Boogina Thiele, 1913 with 1 species, Rufodardanula Ponder, 1965 with 2 species and Pilitonia nov. with 2 species. Tubbreva Ponder, 1965 contains 2 species and Pseudopisinna nov. has 4 species and 1 subspecies.

The family Cingulopsidae has not previously been recognised from Australia, the named species having formerly been included in the Rissoidae.
