Abstract

Cardomanica andersoni n.gen., n.sp. is described from the western Tasman Sea where it lives on the gorgonacean Chrysogorgia orientalis Versluys. This is the first record of a synagogid ascothoracidan from the South Pacific Ocean. The recently described synogogid, Isidascus longispinatus Grygier from the western Atlantic Ocean, is transferred to Cardomanica and split into two species, C. longispinata (Grygier) and C. quadricornuta n.sp.
