Abstract

Being engaged on a re-examination of the holotypes
of Australian Pycnogonida described by Haswell in 1885, I have found it necessary to supplement the material
available by collecting at the localities mentioned in
Haswell's paper. During one of these excursions recently
to Shark Island, Port Jackson, I obtained a Pycnogonid
which could without any difficulty be referred to the genus
Halosoma defined by Cole in 1904 (2). I have, therefore,
taken the opportunity of describing this new species, and
of discussing the position of the genus Halosoma.
