Abstract
    The New Caledonian species of Typhinae are revised. A total of 11 species are recorded; 5, all from deep-sea, are new: Siphonochelus (S.) angustus; S. (S.) boucheti; S. (S.) saitantis; S. (S.) unicornis and S. (? Siphonochelus) undulatus. All the species are described and illustrated together with comparative material. The radulae of 3 species are illustrated: Typhis (Typhina) carolinae Houart, 1987; Siphonochelus (S.) boucheti sp. nov. and S. (S.) saitantis sp. nov. Position and angle of anal tubes are considered to be a good criterion for the separation of species.
