Abstract

Description d'un nouveau genre, Cholomyzon, et d'une nouvelle espèce, C. palpiferum, de Copépodes siphonostomes, endoparasite d'un corail malgache, Dendrophyllia. Quoique ce parasite ressemble, par certaines réductions (quasi-absence de P₄ et de P₅, fusion des articles distaux de l'A₁ ♀) à la famille des Artotrogidae, la structure des appendices céphaliques (A₂, mandibule) montre une affinité très nette avec les Asterocheridae. A l'intérieur de cette famille, il se place dans la sous-famille des Cletopontiinae.
