Abstract

A new species of the genus Platypilumnus, P. jamiesoni n.sp., is described and illustrated from the Upper Bathyal zone of New Caledonia. A key to the four species in the genus is given along with new illustrations for P. inermis, P. gracilipes and P. soelae. The placement of this genus in Goneplacidae and its affinities with Neopilumnoplax Serène, 1969 are discussed.
