Abstract

A new species of cephalocarid, Sandersiella kikuchii, is described from central Japan, 300 m depth. It differs from congeners primarily based on the following points: 5-9 hooks on each ventrolateral side of cephalon; exopod proximal segment of thoracopod 6 with long finger-like lateral process (with narrow base) on the dorsal margin; exopodal distal segment of thoracopod 6 pointed distally, not divided into 2 lobes; exopodal proximal segment and pseudopipod of thoracopod 8 furnished with 2 and 2-3 setae respectively. Sandersiella acuminata Shiino, 1965 is redescribed and illustrated based on the holotype.
