Abstract
    The Pasiphaea alcocki species group is treated herewith, as the third group of the genus Pasiphaea Savigny, 1816. The group is primarily characterized by a deeply concave posterior margin of the telson and the distinctly carinate dorsal margin of the carapace and abdomen. The meri of the first and second pereopods are always armed with many spines, and the ischium and/or basis of the second pereopods are sometimes armed with spines. The group comprises 17 species including two new species both from MUSORSTOM material, Pasiphaea ledoyeri n. sp. and Pasiphaea major n. sp., which are large size species. P. berentsae Kensley, Tranter & Griffin, 1987 is proved to be a junior synonym of P. barnardi Yaldwyn, 1971. P. balssi Burukovsky&Romensky, 1987 is probably a junior synonym of P. rathbunae (Stebbing 1914a). A key to the species of P. alcocki group is presented. Each species is diagnosed and most species are redescribed and/or figured.
