Abstract

Nine species and one subspecies belonging to the orders Hadromerida Topsent and Epipolasida Sollas collected from Papua and New Guinea are described with suitable illustrations. The distribution of Aciculites orientalis Dendy, known only from Gulf of Mannar, is here extended to Papua and New Guinea and the presence of internal asexual bud in the case of Asteropus sarasinorum (Thiele) is also pointed out.
