New species from Juan Fernandez Archipelago

Miquel & Araya (2015) recently published on new shells from the Juan Fernández Archipelago off the coast of Chile. This is the first addition since nearly a century ago. One species is new described, Neoparyphantoplsis crusoeana gen.n., sp.n.; one replacement name is introduced (Tornatellina juanfernandeziana), and five species are re-described.
