Abstract:A small collection of scaphopods from the Gulf of Guinea is described. Of the six species reported here, four have been also taken in the tropical western Atlantic. The four amphiatlantic species are: Dentalium gouldii, Dentalium circumcinctum, Dentalium meridionale and Fustiaria sowerbyi. D. meridionale is the most abundant and most widely distributed species of the material examined. From nine stations, 394 specimens were collected at depths ranging from 403-3590 m.
