Abstract

Two new species of Alabes are reported, one from Tasmania and the other from Norfolk Island. The first is similar in general appearance to A. parvula, but is considerably smaller in size (to 39 mm SL) and inhabits waters of much greater depth (160–348 m). The Norfolk Island species has a uniquely enlarged buccal region and is possibly endemic to this island.
