The genera Urticina and Cribrinopsis (Anthozoa: Actiniaria) from the north‐western Pacific
Three species of Cribrinopsis and two species of Urticina from Kamchatka, Commander Islands, and the Sea of Okhotsk are discussed. It is confirmed that the widely distributed north‐east Pacific anemone known as U. lofotensis ( Tealia lofotensis : Hand, 1955) is different from the European species of the same name ( Madoniactis lofotensis Danielssen, 1890) but is conspecific with Cribrinopsis albopunctata sp. nov. from Kamchatka. Urticina grebelnyi sp. nov. is a large species common in East Kamchatka and recorded also from Puget Sound from where it was previously known as U. crassicornis (Müller, 1776). Cribrinopsis olegi sp. nov. is a distinctive species with short, often almost spherical tentacles known only from East Kamchatka.
