    Sediment samples taken at slope sites at 570-1420 m depths, off the islands New Caledonia and Lifou, southwestern Pacific, contained 9 halacarid species: Bathyhalacarus sordidus n. sp., B. dictyotus n. sp., B. speciosus n. sp., Halacarus sp., Agauopsis bathyalis n. sp., Agauides pacifica n. sp., Copidognathus inusitatus n. sp., and Copidognathus spp. A and B. The species are described. Numerically dominant is Bathyhalacarus, a genus common in the deep-sea. Agauopsis bathyalis and Agauides pacifica are most closely related to species recorded from the northeast Atlantic Ocean.
