Abstract

A new family, Mictocarididae, is proposed for Mictocaris halope, a new genus and species of peracarid crustacean from 4 marine caves on Bermuda. The Mictocarididae do not fit into any known peracaridan order, and a new order, Mictacea, is erected for it and for the Hirsutiidae of Sanders, Hessler, and Garner, 1985 (preceding paper in this journal) by Bowman et al., 1985 (immediately following paper). Mictocaris differs from Hirsutia in possessing eyestalks and a rostrum, an anteriorly rounded labium, marginal setae on the mandibular palp, nonsetose oostegites arising medially, and a pereiopod 2 that is not enlarged.
