The first live taken specimens of Kaiparapelta askewi are reported from Atlantis Seamount in the North Atlantic. The habitat, external morphology of the soft parts, the radula and the shell are described. From the morphological and anatomical features, the classification in the Pseudococculinidae (Cocculiniformia) is confirmed, despite a radula which alone suggests more affinity to notaspidean or chromodorid opistobranchs. This is considered a convergence and is ascribed to assumed spongivory.
