AbstractThe systematics of the northeastern Pacific Lepidochitona from the Californian and Oregonian Provinces (western continental United States) is presented and discussed. Three new species are described: L. caverna spec. nov. and L. berryana spec. nov. from California, and L. fernaldi spec. nov. from Washington and Oregon. These species are compared in most detail to the nominal species L. dentiens (Gould, 1846), L. hartwegii (Carpenter, 1855), L. thomasi (Pilsbry, 1898) and L. keepiana Berry, 1948.
