This paper discusses the taxonomic history, identification, known distribution, ecology
and conservation of Roblinella roblini (Petterd, 1879), the type species of the genus
Roblinella Iredale, 1937. The protoconch is figured, demonstrating the species’
distinctness from the common R. gadensis (Petterd, 1879). R. roblini has been
rediscovered at two localities after having not been collected for over one hundred years
but appears to be scarce and requires further research
