Abstract
    Orphnurgus dorisae new species is described from bathyal depths to the north of New Zealand, near the Kermadec Islands. It is distinctive in possessing spatulate rods and spinous rods dorsally, and spinous rods and perforated plates ventrally. A key to Orphnurgus species is provided. Egg size suggests that this species, and other Orphnurgus species, may have planktonic lecithotrophic embryos.
