Echininus nodulosus (Pfeiffer) has not been reported in the Netherlands Antilles previously although we have observed that this species is by no means uncommon in this area and has been found by us on all the islands visited. In Aruba, on the NE coast at Bushi Ribana, near the old gold workings, the species is quite abundant with up to 5 specimens per sq. meter. It can be found on all the coasts of Curaçao especially on the exposed northern side. Here the most dense accumulation was found to be 5 to 10 snails per sq. meter.
