The tritoniid opisthobranchs of the western Atlantic have recently been reviewed (Marcus, 1983). Seven species in three or four genera are known from tropical and subtropical waters of the region. Investigations by one of us (M.T.G.) in the Bahamas yielded specimens of what appeared to be an undescribed species of Tritonia. Subsequently, our joint investigations in Quintana Roo, Mexico have provided additional specimens of this species. This paper describes the anatomy of this new species and compares it to closely allied species.
