NOTES ON THE GENUS GAEOTIS SHUTTLEWORTH, 1854 (MOLLUSCA, GASTROPODA, BULIMULIDAE) by A. S. H. BREURE (Dept. of Systematic Zoology, University of Leiden, The Netherlands) SUMMARY This paper contains redescriptions of the four species of Gaeotis, while photographs of all the types are presented for the first time. The anatomy is described from a single specimen of Gaeotis sp. and the relationships of this genus with Amphibulima, Pellicula and Peltella are discussed. INTRODUCTION The genus Gaeotis was described by SHUTTLEWORTH in 1854, with three species, G. nigrolineata, G. flavolineata and G. albopunctulata. BLAND & BINNEY (1873) and BINNEY (1884) reported on the jaw and radula of Gaeotis nigrolineata. PILSBRY compiled all data in the Manual of Conchology (1899) and described a new species, Gaeotis malleata. The genus seems to be restricted to Puerto Rico. Recently the type specimens of these four species, as well as a speci- men of Gaeotis sp. preserved in alcohol, became available. This enables me to give a review of the material, to study the anatomy in greater detail and to investigate the relationships of this genus to Amphibulima and Pellicula, genera occurring on the Lesser Antilles.
