A study of major collections led to a revision of the Indo-Pacific leucosioid genus Arcania Leach, 1817. Ixoides cornutus MacGilchrist, 1905 is recognized as belonging to the genus, and four new species are established: A. echinata, A. foliolata, A. muricata and A. fungilifera; in all, fifteen Arcania species are recognized. All species are described and illustrated, extended synonymies are given, and a key for their identification is provided.
