A new genus and species of Fasciolariidae, Angulofusus nedae n. gen. n. sp. conchologically superficially resembling some Conoidea is described. Radula, anatomy and coloration of the body of the new species suggest that it belongs to subfamily Fusininae, being very similar in anatomy to species of the genus Amiantofusus. The species is broadly distributed in the Indo-Pacific, from the Philippines, through Vanuatu and New Caledonia to Wallis and Futuna in 40 to 105 m.
