Sedorolis sp.

Material 3 (8.0 mm), ♀ (ovig. 9.2 mm, non-ovig. 8.2 mm), New Caledonia, 23°10´S, 167°10´E, 29 Aug 1985, 675– 680 m, BIOCAL, stn. DW 33, N.O. ‘Jean Charcot’ ( MNHN Is.6007). 1 ♀, N.O. ‘Jean Charcot’, BIOCAL, stn. DW 33, 23°10´S, 167°10´E, 29 Aug 1985, 675– 680 m ( MNHN Is.6008) [Previously dissected].

Remarks. These specimens are exceedingly similar to Sedorolis simplex sp. n., differing only in being larger ( S. simplex is consistently less than 6 mm), the anterior head lobes a slightly different shape (weakly sinuate vs convex), the penial openings are mutually adjacent (narrowly separate in S. simplex ) and the sternites of pleonites 1–3 seem to have slightly more developed lobes. Th e specimens are also from a slightly greater depth than Sedorolis simplex .

These differences may be due to the Sedorolis sp. material being larger in size. The material has been mutilated (by previous dissection), so description is not possible.
