Abstract: Twenty-four species of opisthobranchs are listed from the southern
tropical Pacific Ocean, from Fiji and the Ellice Islands eastward to the Tuamotus.
Two new genera are described: Pleurebdera (Pleurobranchidae; type species: P.
haraldi n. sp., Tuamotus) and Pupsikus (Dorididae; type species: P. pinguis n. sp.,
Tahiti). The following five other new species and subspecies are described and
figured : Noumea norba (Dorididae: Chromodoridinae, Viti Levu, Fiji); Peronodoris
rebderi (Dorididae: Archidoridinae, Tahiti); Tayuva ketos juva (Dorididae:
Discodoridinae, Rurutu , Tubuai Islands ); Phyllidia tula (Phyllidiidae, Nukulaelae,
Ellice Islands); Phyllidia soria (Tahiti) . The internal anatomy of these species, as
well as of many of the previously known species, is described. Many species are
recorded from Polynesia for the first time.
