Aplacophorous mollusks consisting of 134 specimens from 95 samples ranging from 42- to 134-m depth along the South Texas continental shelf are reported, as a result of a Bureau of Land Management survey. Until now, there have been no known records of aplacophorous mollusks anywhere in the Gulf of Mexico. This paper reports three genera of Caudofoveata and one genus of Solenogastres which may prove to contain a number of new species. Descriptions and scanning electron micrographs of the respective animals are given.
