Two new species of macrourid fishes of the genus Coryphaenoides from New Zealand are described. Coryphaenoides dossenus n. sp. is widespread on the continental slope at 480-1464 m and shows sexual dimorphism with the largest male about half the length of the largest female. It is also known from the Tasman Sea, Coral Sea, Indian Ocean, and the eastern side of the Atlantic Ocean south of c. 6degree S. Coryphaenoides microstomus n. sp. is known only from four specimens collected from a single station at 1550-1720 m off the east coast of the North Island, New Zealand.
