    Thirty species of Pectinoidea are reported from off the Kai and Tanimbar Is1ands, Arafura Sea, at shelf to bathyal depths (111-1244 m). Of these, eight are new records for the Indonesian Archipelago and two are new species: Parvamussium conspectum sp. nov. (Propeamussiidae) and Veprichlamys versipellis sp. nov. (Pectinidae). On average, the bathymetric occurrence of species is shallower in the study area than in the South-West Pacific. Amussium margaritiferum Dautzenberg & Bavay, 1912, is synonymized with Propeamussium investigatoris (E.A. Smith, 1906), and Parvamussium crypticum Hayami & Kase, 1993, is synonymized with P. carbaseum Dijkstra, 1991. Lectotypes are designated for five nominal taxa.
