Among molluscan material from Western Samoa collected by H. Bayer and sent to the first author an unknown species of chiton was found. It is here described as Callochiton mumuena spec. nov. The new taxon is only known from the holotype, collected on Savaii Island under coral slab at a depth of one metre.
