Type locality West of Meyer Islands (S 29°14′39.06″ W177°52′46.56″), near Raoul Island, Kermadec Islands, New Zealand. Tripneustes were abundant in this habitat of rock spurs that had small areas of horizontal rock, to near vertical rock walls (0–10 m) leading to a base of sand (starting at 11 m and gently sloping deeper). [details]
Type material Holotype. Auckland War Memorial Museum, Auckland, New Zealand (AIM MA) specimen AIM MA73563 (isolate nr. Ker907), a cleaned corona, spines and lantern, collected by J. David Aguirre and Libby Liggins on 31/10/2015 at a depth of 0 to 10 m. A tissue sample (tubefeet) has been deposited together with the holotype. Paratypes. Two cleaned coronas (AIM MA73564 and Naturhistorisches Museum Wien, Geologisch-Paläontologische Abteilung, Vienna, Austria (NHMW-Geo) NHMW-Geo 2017/0016/0001 [formerly MA 121530.10]; isolate Ker903 and Ker910 respectively) and five intact, formalin-fixed specimens preserved in ethanol (AIM MA73565, AIM MA73566, and National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research, Wellington, New Zealand (NIWA) 116558 [=isolates Ker902, Ker904, and Ker911]; Naturhistorisches Museum Wien, 3.

Diagnosis A species of Tripneustes with ambulacral primary tubercles occurring on every fourth plate ambitally; flattened test (height usually <60% test diameter (TD)); large peristomal opening (ca. 25%TD) without sunken margin; presence of one to two plates for every four ambulacral plates occluded from perradial suture (except in smallest specimens <80 mm TD); primary series of interambulacral tubercles continuous from peristome to apex; tubercles large; secondary interambulacral tuberculation reduced above ambitus. [details]

Etymology Named after the type region, the Kermadec Islands, a subtropical island arc in the South Pacific Ocean, ca. 800–1,000 km NE of New Zealand’s North Island. [details]
