A new species of Vasticardium from tropical Queensland, Australia, is described based on morphological differences with known taxa from that region. The new species differs in having acute ribs, a character it shares only with Vasticardium angulata Lamarck, 1819, which typically has coarser ribbing and which lacks colour within the shell interior.
