Abstract
    Thirty-one species of asteroids were collected in waters off Marion and Prince Edward (MPE) islands during benthic surveys made by the University of Cape Town between 1982 and 1989. From the thirty-one species, one is new to science Solaster dianei sp. nov.), eleven are new for the MPE area and eight were previously known only from the Subantarctic part of the Weddell quadrant.
