Abstract
    Elaphriella n. gen. is a new genus of small to fairly large (up to 18 mm) solariellids superficially resembling the genus Archiminolia Iredale, 1929. The latter differs, among others, by a much thicker columella, spiral cords or grooves that often continue on the body whorl and spiral cords inside the umbilicus. The two genera form distinct clades in a molecular phylogeny of the family Solariellidae. Seven new species are described, all from deep water (300-900 meters) in the South and West Pacific: Elaphriella cantharos n. sp., E. eukhonikhe n. sp., E. paulinae n. sp., E. wareni n. sp., E. dikhonikhe n. sp., E. helios n. sp. and E. leia n. sp.
