Abstract

This contribution contains descriptions of two new species, one from New South Wales and one from Western Australia. The former belongs to the genus Pseudarchaster, which has not hitherto been recorded from Australian waters; the Western Australian species belongs to Parasterina, and has already in that State an ally, P. crassa (Gray). The genus Parasterina is, so far, confined to the southern hemisphere, being recorded from South Africa, Australia, and South America.
