Three Ovulid species collected from Jeju Island were identified as Habuprionovolva aenigma (Azuma & Cate, 1971), Habuprionovolva basilia (Cate, 1978) and Diminovula kosugei (Cate, 1973). This is the first record from the Korean waters, providing a description of the species with illustration for the shell morphology.
