Abstract
    Two new species of Benthopecten are described from New Zealand waters; B. pikei from 550-630m in the Bay of Plenty, and B. munidae, from 740m off the Otago coast. This brings the total of New Zealand species to five. The affinities of the two new species seem to lie with the other New Zealand species.
