Enigmatic ophiuroids from the New Caledonian region
Memoirs of Museum Victoria Vol 73 p. 47–57 (2015)
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.
