Raoulserenea pygmae, the fifth species of the genus to be recognized, is described from specimens found from inshore habitats in French Polynesia. The combination of the small size of adults, total length less than 35 mm, and the unarmed, broad, cordiform rostral plate distinguish this species from its congeners. A key to the species of Raoulserenea is given.
