Zusammenfassung: 
An interstitial pholoid, Laubierpholoe indooceanica, new species, is described from sand sediments of coral reef flats of the Indian island Krusadai and the Seychelles island Mahe. As in the other four species of the genus, embryos develop in brood pouches in each of two elytra. Features of chaetation, especially the presence of hook-like blades in some of the compound neurochaetae, are the distinguishing characters of the species.
