Abstract

Three new species are described from New Caledonia which have been provisionally placed in the genera Ophiohamus (Ophiacanthidae), Ophionereis (Ophionereididae) and Ophiodaphne (Amphiuridae) respectively, pending a comprehensive revision of the Ophiuroidea. In addition, new specimens and morphological variation is described for the species Amphipholis linopneusti (Amphiuridae). Our knowledge of the deep-sea fauna of New Caledonia remains incomplete.
