Abstract
    A new species in each of two recently proposed genera are described and illustrated: Alainopaguroides megalophthalmus n. sp., Icelopagurus undulatus n. sp. The new species assignable to Alainopaguroides McLaughlin expands the range of this genus from the Kai and Tanimbar Islands of Indonesia and the Andaman Sea to New Caledonia. Similarly, the discovery of a new and readily recognizable species belonging to the heretofore monotypic Icelopagurus McLaughlin extends the distribution of this genus from Indonesia to New Caledonia. The diagnoses of both genera have been emended slightly to accommodate the interspecific variation exhibited by the taxa now included.
