Abstract


A genuine interstitial cyclopoid species belonging to the genus Psammophilocyclops Fryer, 1956 is recorded from the filtration basin of a water treatment plant, South Korea. The genus Psammophilocyclops is very rarely found, and only three species have been recognized as yet: P. boccaroi Fryer, 1956 from Africa, P. trispinosus Shen et Tai, 1964 and P. bispinosus Shen et Tai, 1964 from China. The present new species differs from the congeneric species by the character combination of 11-segmented antennule in female, four-segmented maxilliped with 2,1,1,2 setation, the spine formula of 3,3,3,3, and setal arrangement of 3,3,5,3 on the distal endopodal segments of legs 1?4. Description and taxonomic accounts of the new species are presented with a revised generic diagnosis and a key to the species hitherto known in the genus.
