Abstract

A doliolid species belonging to the genus <i>Paradoliopsis</i> was photographed by an Autonomous Visual Plankton Recorder (AVPR) off the eastern seaboard of Japan in October 2014 at 493–512 m depth. Two <i>Paradoliopsis</i> gonozooids were also captured on the video record of the ROV <i>Crambon</i> at 372–373 m depth during the same cruise. This is the first record of this genus from the Pacific Ocean, and although it resembles the sole described species in this genus, <i>P. harbisoni</i> Godeaux, 1996, some aspects of its morphology suggest it may be an as-yet-undescribed species.
