The original description of Solatisonax cabrali Tenório, Barros, Francisco & Silva, 2011 (Architectonicidae) was based on four eroded juvenile shells found on the northeastern Brazilian coast. The present study redescribes this snail species based on the type material and additional well-preserved shells collected in southeastern Brazil, an adult and a juvenile, respectively from off Ubatuba (São Paulo state) and Campos Basin (Rio de Janeiro state). The type material is also partially illustrated herein. Some problems with the original description of the species are here addressed. The new records extend the known geographic range of the species ca. 1,700 km southwards, from Pernambuco to São Paulo.
