Eupyrgulina is a genus of small sea snails, pyramidellid gastropod mollusks in the tribe Chrysallidini within the family Pyramidellidae.


The genus mainly occurs in the Arabian Sea.

Life habits[edit]

Little is known about the biology of the members of this genus. As is true of most members of the Pyramidellidae sensu lato, they are ectoparasites.


Species within the genus Eupyrgulina include:
