Abstract

Surveys of coral reefs and sandy shallow environments in the Indo-West Pacific and Australia have discovered 14 species of Eucalliacidae, of which four are new. All species are diagnosed, and Andamancalliax arafura sp. nov., Eucalliaxiopsis dworschaki sp. nov., Eucalliaxiopsis paradoxa sp. nov. and Eucalliaxiopsis patio sp. nov. are described as new. The collection is an opportunity to re-diagnose other species and provide colour photographs of some. Calliaxina xishaensis Liu and Liang, 2016, is synonymised with Calliaxina novaebritanniae (Borradaile, 1900).
