Cribrilinid associations originating from Pleistocene deep-water sediments from two localities near Messina (Sicily, Italy), i.e. Capo Milazzo (Gelasian) and Scoppo (Calabrian), were examined. Five cribrilinid species were found, three in each locality and time interval, with only one species shared. Three species, Cribrilaria profunda n. sp., Glabrilaria transversocarinata n. sp., and Figularia spectabilis n. sp., are new to science. Of the two remaining species, Figularia figularis was already known from local fossil associations, whereas Glabrilaria pedunculata, a present-day Mediterranean species, is recorded for the first time as fossil. New combinations are suggested for two species previously assigned to Puellina, i.e. Cribrilaria saldanhai (Harmelin, 2001) n. comb. and Cribrilaria mikelae (Harmelin, 2006) n. comb. The diagnosis of the genus Figularia was amended to include erect growth morphology in addition to the encrusting form and to explicit the
occurrence of kenozooidal ooecia. Following a literature revision of all species currently assigned to Figularia, the new combinations Vitrimurella capitifera (Canu and Bassler, 1929) n. comb. and Hayamiellina quaylei (Powell, 1967a) n. comb. are suggested, and ‘problematic’ species are listed and briefly discussed.
