    A Micronesian collection of 130 opisthobranchs belonging to the U. S. National Museum contained 53 species. Only 10 of them are new, and half of these are less than 5 mm in length. These small numbers show the uniformity of the opisthobranch fauna on the reefs in the Indo-West Pacific Ocean, most of whose bigger species are already known. The following new species are described: Stiliger {Ercolania) illus, Elysia bayeri, Elysia ratna, Hypselodoris cuis, Discodoris lora, Discodoris ylva, Catriona lonca, Catriona urquisa, Noumeaella rehderi, and Muessa evelinae, the type-species of a new genus of the Favoriniae, allied to Herviella.
