Abstract
    The protandric hermaphrodite Pedicularia morrisoni n.sp. is described from Lord Howe Island, NSW, Australia. It lives as commensal on Stylaster brunneus Boschma, 1970 and differs from its congeners by larger shell, and finer, cancellate dorsal sculpture, which abruptly decreases in density during the transition from male to female.
