Recently Van Mol (1971: 223) has shown that Simpulopsis Beck, 1837, belongs to the Bulimulidae instead of to the Amphibuliminae (cf. Zilch, 1960). During work for a generic revision of the Bulimulidae a small collection of Simpulopsis, collected in southern Brazil, came to my hands. The only species previously known to occur in this region is Simpulopsis (Simpulopsis) sulculosa (Férussac). The material at hand was collected by Mr. Fritz Plaumann in 1936-1938 near Nova Teutonia. The labels of the material indicate that the geographical postion of this locality is 27°11’ S 52°23’ W, which is in south-central Santa Catarina.
