Abstract
    Two new Liljeborgia species are described: L. anepsia n. sp. From the Falkland Islands and L. bathysciarum n. sp. from the continental slope near Elephant Island. L. chevreuxi Schellenberg, 1931, L. nesiotica d’Udekem d’Acoz, 2008 and L. polydeuces d’Udekem d’Acoz, 2008, previously only recorded from the West Antarctic area, are shown to be circum-Antarctic species. L. cryptothrix d’Udekem d’Acoz, 2008 and L. kerguelensis Bellan-Santini & Ledoyer, 1974, which were only known from Ile Kerguelen, are now recorded from Macquarie Island. The New Zealand species L. barhami Hurley, 1954 is recorded for the first time from Stewart Island (most southernly record) and the species is fully re-described. The variations of L. longicornis (Schellenberg, 1931) are discussed.
