Abstract
A new stenopodidean shrimp, Spongicoloides novaezelandiae sp. nov., taken in a depth of about 1000 m in the Chatham Rise is described and illustrated. It is somewhat similar to the east Atlantic Spongicoloides evolutus (Bouvier), from which it is readily distinguished by the number of gills on the maxillipeds. The genus Spongicoloides Hansen, previously known only from the Atlantic, is recorded for the first time from New Zealand waters as well as from the Pacific.
