In meiofauna of the intertidal and subtidal zones (to 20 m depth) of New Caledonia seven species of the marine enchytraeid genus Grania were found, all of which were previously undescribed: G. novacaledonia sp.n., G. cinctura sp. n., G. galbina sp. n., G. curta sp. n., G. fustata sp. n., G. papillata sp. n. and G. fiscellata sp. n. On the basis of morphology, these new species seem to have a phylogenetic affinity to congeners in Australia and possibly Antarctica, although little is known about the enchytraeid fauna of the surrounding areas.
