Abstract

A new species of pygmy pipehorse, Idiotropiscis lumnitzeri, is described from a female and two male specimens collected in the Sydney region, New South Wales, Australia. It can be distinguished from its congeners, I. australe (Waite & Hale, 1921) and I. larsonae (Dawson, 1984), in having a shorter and more posteriorly positioned frontal ridge dorsally on the head, a very short trunk (slightly longer than head, versus clearly longer than head), and in having a longer snout (2.2-2.6 in head, versus 2.8-3.2 in I. australe and 3.7-3.8 in I. larsonae).
