In this paper we review the Drilliidae, Fusiturridae, Horaiclavidae, Turridae from the early Late Pliocene Estepona assemblages and include some member of the Borsoniidae and Pseudomelatomidae omitted in the previous part of this series. One species is added to the Borsoniidae, six species are included in the Drilliidae, two in the Fusiturridae, two in the Horaiclavidae, one new genus is described in the Pseudomelatomidae: Kantoria nov. gen. and six species added, one of which is new: K. castoris nov. sp., and three to the Turridae. Spirotropis alejandroi Vera-Peláez, 2022 is considered a junior subjective synonym of Spirotropis monterosatoi (Locard, 1897). Fusiturris smoothi Vera Peláez, 2022 is considered a junior subjective synonym of F. minima Vera-Peláez, 2002.
