"Boonea" is a small genus of small sea snails, pyramidellid gastropod mollusks. This genus is currently placed in the the subfamily Chrysallidinae, of the family Odostomiidae.

Distribution

This genus is only known from North American waters.

Life habits

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

The species "Boonea impressa" however is know to be a severe pest of the edible oyster "Crassostrea virginica" (Wilson, Powell & Ray, 1988)
