Species [5] of the genus Lucifer are found in Japanese waters: L. chacei, L. hanseni, L. intermedius, L. penicillifer and L. typus. The 1st species is probably a new member to the Japanese fauna. The others have been recorded in many previous reports under the invalid name L. reynaudii. A key to these 5 spp. and a distributional map are presented. The shape of the thoracic sternal plate as seen under the scanning electron microscope is proposed as a character that can be used to distinguish between females of L. intermedius and L. penicillifer.
