( Fig. 1B View FIGURE 1 )

Rochinia carinata Griffin & Tranter, 1986: 175   (key), 178, figs. 56, 64e, f, pl. 12 (type locality Kai Islands, Indonesia).

Rochinia   carinata— Ng & Richer de Forges 2007: 62 View Cited Treatment (table).— Ng et al. 2008: 105 (list).— Richer de Forges & Poore 2008: 66, fig. 1d.

Laubierinia   carinata— Richer de Forges & Ng 2009a: 15 View Cited Treatment , 16, figs. 6E, F, 9A–F, 11D [new combination].

Material examined. Papua New Guinea: 1 male (24.7 × 16.0 mm) (MNHN-IU-2014-8128) [photographed], stn CP4445, New Ireland, 02°15’S 150°17’E, 342–380 m, coll. KAVIENG 2014, 1 September 2014 GoogleMaps   .— 1 ovigerous female (17.4 × 11.6 mm) (MNHN-IU-2014-8129) [photographed], stn CP4445, New Ireland, 02°15’S 150°17’E, 342–380 m, coll. KAVIENG 2014, 1 September 2014 GoogleMaps   .

Remarks. The specimens of Laubierinia carinata   collected in the Bismarck Sea are larger than in earlier reported series (cf. Richer de Forges & Poore 2008; Richer de Forges & Ng 2009a) but otherwise agree well with published material from the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. The known distribution of L. carinata   includes Indonesia, northwestern Australia, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Island, Vanuatu, and New Caledonia.

The live coloration of the Papua New Guinea specimens is an orange carapace with white gastric, cardiac and branchial plates, orange and white hepatic plates, and orange for the other large granules on the carapace ( Fig. 1B View FIGURE 1 ).
