Abstract
    A cruise conducted by RV Southern Surveyor between latitudes 53°0´S and 56°17´S and longitudes 158°30´E and159°25´E sampled 11 sites by dredging at depths ranging from 364 to 1422 m off subantarctic Macquarie Island. Twentysevenspecies of hydroids including six new, were identified from the collection. There was no discernible distributionalpattern of species with depth. The most diverse hydroid assemblage was recovered from 500-600 m depth andthe second richest at 1064 m.
