Abstract:Kiyohimea usagi is the second species to be described in the monogeneric family Kiyohimeidae. Kiyohimeidea aurita possesses tentacular canals but no tentacular apparatus while K. usagi has both tentacular canals and tentacular apparatus. Observations and collections of K. usagi were made in Monterey Bay with a remotely operated vehicle between 200 m and 310 m in the Monterey Submarine Canyon.
