Abstract
The polychelid lobsters collected by the CIDARIS expeditions from outer shelf and slope waters off the central Great Barrier Reef are reported. Eight species in four genera are reported, including the first Queensland record of Stereomastis nana, the first Australian record of Pentacheles obscurus, and the first Indo-Pacific record of Willemoesia forceps.
