Abstract
    Paralaophonte harpagone sp. n. is described from the coast of Kenya. Its most distinguishing feature is the robust, enlarged and specialised maxilliped, present in both sexes. This maxilliped is similar in robustness and position to the highly specialised maxilliped in the laophontid genus Namakosiramia Ho & Perkins, 1977 the two members of which live as ectoparasites on holothurians. The detailed description of P. harpagone sp. n. and a discussion of the possible role of the maxilliped are presented in the accompanying Organisms Diversity & Evolution Electronic Supplement.
