This memoir comprises a systematic survey of all species of Hydromedusae recorded from New Zealand waters. Of the more than 134 species represented in the fauna, 124 are named to species and 10 are named to genus only. Each species entry is accompanied by: diagnostic characters and an illustration of the medusa, a short diagnosis of the hydroid stage where known, a summary of geographical distribution, and some key references. Keys for identification are given for the orders, families, genera, and described species. Approximately 76% are meropelagic (neritic, epipelagic, or slope species) and 23% are holopelagic. Approximately 55% of the meropelagic medusae (Anthomedusae, Leptomedusae, Limnomedusae, Laingiomedusae) have their life-cycle unknown, and, among the 49 species with known life-cycles, 16 are only imperfectly known from experimental rearing and are not yet known in the field.Descriptors: Eirene proboscidea, Eucheilota sp., Mitrocomella niwai, Protiara sp., Tiaropsis gordonigiappone
