The holotype of Erato callosa A. Adams & Reeve, 1850 is rediscovered. Erato callosa is a junior synonym of Hespererato scabriuscula (J.E. Gray in G.B. Sowerby I, 1832). Former incorrectly identified specimens from the central Indo-Pacific are described as Hespererato rubra. The new species is briefly discussed and compared with similar species.
