A review of the Blasicrura teres complex living in Hawaiian waters has resulted in a quite different interpretation of this complex. The review is based on the unique visual database (VDB) of Blasicrura teres shells published by the late R.C. Dayle (2004). A single subspecies of Blasicrura teres is recognized, which differs from representatives of this complex elsewhere by smaller and mostly wider shells of an elliptical shape. This subspecies is here named Blasicrura teres rashleighana (Melvill, 1888). The full details of this conchological study based on data of 987 specimens and 5280 pictures of the majority of these specimens given by Dayle are published separately in Supplement 3 to this issue of Triton.
