Abstract: The gastropod fauna is abundant and more diverse in the Upper Mississippian Maxville Limestone than previously described. Seventeen species, including 6 reported for the first time, are known and fragments of several others indicate a still larger fauna is present. A taxonomic update of earlier work includes the new species Platyceras (Orthonychia) morsei, Stegocoelia (Hypergonia)? jonathanensis, and Acteonina hanseni. Small, poorly preserved specimens of rostroconchs represent the genus Oxyprora.
