Abstract
    An enigmatic small-sized gastropod is recorded on few shells originating from the western Iberian Peninsula. It is assigned to the family Eulimidae relying on shell characters, and compared to species of several genera which share some morphological features with it. It is described as new and provisionally included in Chileutomia Tate et Cossmann, 1898, although with reservation, as we refrain to establish a new genus without anatomical and molecular data which can clarify the phylogenetic relationships of the new species.
