Abstract
    Verrucomorpha from deep sea collections made by several French cruises to New Caledonia, Loyalty Ridge, Vanuatu, Wallis Island and Futuna Islands, Comoro Islands, and by the French-Indonesian cruise KARUBAR in Indonesian waters, over the period 1985-1994, are investigated. Fourteen species of verrucid are described, including four new species, Verruca jago, Altiverruca jonesae, Brochiverruca crosnieri and Metaverruca maclaughlinae; the bathymetric and geographic ranges of verrucid taxa are extended, and it is confirmed that this is one of the most diverse verrucomorph faunas known. The status of both Verruca and Metaverruca is considered, and a revised key to genera of the Verrucidae is given.
