Abstract
    Twenty-eight species of Pycnogonida (plus one unidentifiable juvenile) are recorded from new Caledonia and Vanuatu (formerly the New Hebrides, some 400 km NE of New Caledonia), mostly from deep waters, but some in the littoral and infra-littoral zones. They belong to the families Ammotheidae (8 species, of which two, in the genera Ascorhynchus and Cilunculus, are new), Colossendeidae (7 species, of which one, in the genus Colossendeis, new), Nymphonidae (2 species in the genus Nymphon, both new), Callipallenidae (I species), Phoxichilidiidae (10 species), and Pycnogonidae (1 species). In addition to the species new to science, several others are new to the area and represent extensions of the previously known ranges. A key to all known species of Cilunculus is presented.
