Abstract

Eleven species of hydroids including two new (Halecium corpulatum and Plumularia fragilia) from a depth of 50 m, 50 km north of Dampier, Western Australia are reported. The tropical hydroid fauna of Western Australia is poorly known; species recorded here show strong affinity with the Indonesian and Indo–Pacific region.
