Abstract
    The deep-water Cancellariidae collected during the KARUBAR cruise near the Kai and Tanimbar Islands are represented by 20 species (9 new), only two of which were recorded earlier from the Arafura Sea. As many as 14 species (70% of the total) are represented by single specimens, and 17 (85% ) have been collected at one station only: this points to a still more diverse cancellariid fauna. New species of Axelelia, Perplicaria, and Solaria represent the first occurrence of these genera in the Indo-West Pacific. Admete aethiopica Thiele, 1925, recently suspected to be a species of Turridae, is confirmed as a cancellariid.
