    Favartia (Pygmaepterys) kernoi n. sp. is described from Hawaii. It was previously confused with F. (P.) funafutiensis (Hedley, 1899) but differs in having a lecithotrophic larval development vs planktotrophic in F. (P.) funafutiensis. The new species is compared with other Indo-West Pacific species of Pygmaepterys, namely F. (P.) avatea Houart & Trondle, 2008 from French Polynesia and New Caledonia, F. (P.) bellini (D'Attilio & Myers, 1985) from the Philippines and Okinawa, F. (P.) lifouensis Houart & Heros, 2012 from New Caledonia and F. (P.) philcloveri (Houari, 1984) from the Philippines. It is also briefly compared with the other eleven species from the Indo-West Pacific.
