Note(s): Homophymia stipitata n. sp. is described from continental shelf banks off northeasternNew Zealand, and compared with the genus holotype H. lamellosaVacelet & Vasseur, 1971 from Madagascar. Diagnostic morphological charactersfor Homophymia are reviewed, expanded, and compared to those ofCallipelta Sollas, 1888, Macandrewia Gray, 1859 and Daedalopelta Sollas,1888 in the dicranocladinid lithistid family Corallistidae. A suite of morphologicalcharacters were identified that link these genera with each other andwith Neopelta Schmidt, 1880 presently in the monogeneric dicranocladinidfamily Neopeltidae. Two major diagnostic features characterize this group –the possession of monocrepid megarhizoclone desmas with a distinctive shortcrepis visible in the epirhabd and modified ectosomal desmas which resembletriaenes.Florida Atlantic University.
