Abstract: The checklist was compiled from published material. A total of 130 species of extant muricid gastropods present in the South China Sea is listed, with brief introductions to subfamilies and genera. Of the subfamilies recognized in the family Muricidae, the Muricinae contains 54 species, Muricopsinae with 5 species, Typhinae and Ocenebrinae each has two species, and Rapaninae comprises 67 species. There were no species belonging to the subfamilies Tripterotyphinae and Trophoninae. Where possible, recent illustrated references for each species are given. The coralliophilids are considered a separate family and therefore not listed. © National University of Singapore.
