Abstract
    A new genus and two new species of mithrodiid asteroids from the Pacific and Indian Oceans are described. Mithrodia gigas Mortensen, from South Africa, is referred to the new genus. The status of the species of Mithrodia is discussed. Mithrodia fisheri Holly and Mithrodia clavigera (Lamarck) are retained as valid species but Mithrodia victoriae Bell and Mithrodia bradleyi Verrill are provisionally referred to the synonymy of M. clavigera.
