Abstract: Eleven calcaxonian gorgonians are reported from seamounts in the Northeast Pacific, including eight new records for this region, six of which are described as new species. Twenty-one calcaxonians are now known from the Northeast Pacific (exclusive of Alaska). A table of comparisons is given for all six species of Parastenella and the three eastern Pacific species of Calyptrophora. A neotype is designated for Chrysogorgia fruticosa.
