The present collection comprises 12 Agononida species, 3 Crosnierita, 42 Munida, and 12 Paramunida species. Paramunida aliena Macpherson, 1996 is transferred to the genus Plesionida. The material was taken at 206 stations in a depth range of 79-1226 m. Additional material from New Caledonia and Vanuatu has also been considered. The following new species are described: Agononida garciai, A. insolita, Crosnierita tucanae, Munida angusta, M. apodis, M. delicata, M. limatula, M. ommata, M. pavonis, M. pumila, M. volantis, and Paramunida cristata and P. curvata.
