A new species of Anuropus from the Galapagos region (Isopoda: Flabellifera: Cirolanidae)



A new species of Anuropus, A. pacificus is described from the Galapagos region. It differs markedly from the other species of Anuropus especially in the structure of the head region. The head is bilobed with the dorsal surface and margins convex, and with a small vertical “rostrum” level with the anterior margin. The antennules are extremely large, strongly angular, and located in a deep excavation of the front of the head and the anterior peracon tergite. Present material was sorted from regurgitated food of the Waved albatross from Hood Island, Galapagos.
