AbstractThe late Eugène Leloup examined samples from five stations of the Benthédi-Expédition, 1977, in the North of the Mozambique Channel, containing four species of chitons, two of which proved to be new to science. The material here discussed, coming from eighteen Benthédistations, proved to contain fourteen species, among which the four previously reported by Leloup (1981), and two hitherto unknown, here described as Leptochiton (Leptochiton) gloriosus spec, nov. and Ischnochiton (Ischnochiton) crassus spec. nov.
The Réunion material came from nine stations and contains five species of chitons, two of which are new, viz. Leptochiton (Leptochiton) kurnilatus spec. nov. and Ischnochiton (Stenosemus) vitreolus spec. nov.
