Note(s): Two new species of prayine siphonophore are described from specimens collected by the submersibles Johnson-Sea-Link I and II. Although they possess some unique morphological features, the general characters of these new species suggest that they belong to the genus, Rosacea sensu Bigelow. These characters are discussed in relation to the detailed comparisons of other prayine species made previously by Pugh and Harbison.
