Spermatophores of Iolaea scitula (A. Adams, 1860), described for the first time, have an oblong shape with a tapering tube, are attached to the shell, and resemble previously reported spermatophores of “Chrysallida” obtusa and Fargoa species. Since these taxa are similar also in other soft part characters, it may be possible that they are closely related.
