Edmond Saurin (1904-1977) mainly published on geology and archeology, approximately 130 and 50 papers, respectively. Only eight malacological publications on Recent Mollusca are known from him. Two papers concern terrestrial Mollusca. Three articles are on marine Gastropoda and Bivalvia of the Paracel Islands (South China Sea). Three other publications on Recent Mollusca are important for the taxonomy of tropical Pyramidellidae. A total of 222 new pyramidellids has been described by Saurin. A complete list, with some annotations, of these new species is given. A list of his eponyms concerning Recent Mollusca is given too.
