Jouannetia (Pholadopsis) spinosa n. sp. is described as the second species in the West Pacific and the sixth species of the subgenus Pholadopsis. It lives in weakly consolidated mud and sand blocks obtained from relatively deep waters in Japan and the Philippines. J. (P.) spinosa n. sp. is characterized by a small spherical shell with dense spiny sculpture, remarkably concave posterior portion of the anterior slope, a siphonoplax with claw-like spines on the posterior margin, and red pigmentation on the translucent mantle collar at the base of the siphon. It bas been collected from depths ranging from 50 to 180 m, and shows a marked difference in depth range compared to the intertidal congener Jouannetia (Pholadopsis) globulosa in the West Pacific. The structure of the mesoplax in the subfamily Jouannetiinae is also discussed in detail.
