Abstract

A new order, Mictacea, is proposed within the superorder Peracarida for Hirsutia bathyalis Sanders, Hessler, and Garner and Mictocaris halope Bowman and Iliffe. The new order is characterized by a unique combination of characters, most of which are not unique to the Mictacea, but are found in at least one other peracaridan order.
