Genus Tunepugettia Ng, Komai & Sato, 2017  

Tunepugettia Ng, Komai & Sato, 2017: 145   [type species: Pugettia sagamiensis Gordon, 1930   , original designation by Ng et al. (2007)].

Remarks. Ng et al. (2017) clarified the identity of Goniopugettia Sakai, 1986   , and described a new genus, Tunepugettia   , for Pugettia sagamiensis Gordon, 1930   . This genus currently includes the type species Tunepugettia sagamiensis ( Gordon, 1930)   ( Fig. 11 View FIGURE 11 A–C), and tentatively, T. brevirostris ( Doflein, 1904) ( Ng et al. 2017)   . The present study shows that T. brevirostris   should be transferred to Crocydocinus   n. gen. instead (see remarks for the latter for comparisons). With this transfer, and the description of a new species, Tunepugettia corbariae   n. sp. from PNG, there are now two species in this genus.
