A rare copepod associated with eunicid worms is redescribed as Eunicicola insolens (T. & A. Scott) nov. comb., and its occurrence recorded from the north-east coast of Ireland, where it is found on Eunice harassii. An interpretation of the mouthparts is appended, and a prior suggestion is reinforced that its affinities lie with the family Clausidiidae. Notes on the biology, especially as regards adhesion to the host, locomotion and feeding are also given.
