Caecoserolis novaecaledoniae Poore & Brandt, 1997: 161 (part).

Manca (7.8 mm; paratype of C. novaecaledoniae ), 23°56´S, 166°41´E, 1 Sep 1985, 2660– 2750 m, BIOCAL stn CP58 ( MNHN Is.4080) GoogleMaps .

Remarks. This specimen differs from the holotype and other paratypes of M. novaecaledoniae in a number of significant characters. The cuticle is heavily pitted, the lateral margins of pereonite 1 are posteriorly nearly straight, the mid-dorsal region of pereonite 1 has an obscure transverse ridge, the eyes are set right against the lateral margin of the head, and the head, pereonites 4 and 7 and pleonite 1 each have a small but distinct median tubercle. Th is specimen is not C. novaecaledoniae , and is closer to large deep-water species such as M. koro sp. n. and M. carinata ( Bruce, 2008) .
