Material examined. Indonesia: Mollucas , KARUBAR cruise, stn. CC 21, 5°14’S 133°00’E, 688–694 m, 25 October 1991: 1 male (24.6 x 18.4 mm) ( MNHN-B 22486 ) GoogleMaps . Madagascar: stn. 37, 12°51’S 48°06.3’E, 675–705 m, coll. A. Crosnier, 14 December 1972: 1 male (33.8 x 24.1 mm) ( MNHN-B 7019 ) GoogleMaps .

Remarks. Homolochunia valdiviae was described from off east Africa ( Doflein 1904). It was later recorded from Madagascar, Seychelles and Indonesia ( Ihle 1913; Gordon 1950; Griffin & Brown 1976; Kensley 1981a, b). Guinot & Richer de Forges (1995), in their revision of the family, recognised specimens identified as this species from Japan ( Sakai 1955; Miyake 1983; Nagai 1994) as a new species, H. gadaletae Richer de Forges & Guinot, 1995 . These two species are easily differentiated by the shape of the subcheliform P5 ( H. valdiviae : Fig. 6A; H . gadaletae: Fig 6C). This species lives on muddy bottoms, between 400 and 1000 m, depths which are relatively deeper than that reported for H. gadaletae which is 150 to 250 m.
