The Psolidae of New Zealand and some additions to the Macquarie Ridge fauna (Echinodermata: Holothuroidea: Psolidae)
Memoirs of Museum Victoria Vol 70 p. 51–67 (2013)
One new species of Psolus and four new species of Psolidium are described from New Zealand and Macquarie Ridge: Psolus macquariensis sp. nov., Psolidium aequm sp. nov., Psolidium kermadeci sp. nov., Psolidium marriotti sp. nov. and Psolidium ramum sp. nov. Psolus neozelanicus is a subjective junior synonym of Psolus antarcticus. New material is assigned to Psolus squamatus (Müller) var. segregatus Perrier and the diagnostic characters noted. Psolidium whittakeri O'Loughlin and Ahearn, formerly known only from Antarctic waters, also occurs off New Zealand. Ten species of the family Psolidae are now known from New Zealand: five in the genus Psolus Oken, and five in the genus Psolidium Ludwig. A key to the New Zealand and included Macquarie material is provided.
