Abstract
    Isopoda examined were collected at the northern Mid-Atlantic Ridge with a bottom trawl in July 2004 in the framework of the MAR-ECO project. Aega sarsae sp. nov. is described from the material. As the recent redescription of Syscenus atlanticus Kononenko, 1988 did not allow an accurate identification, this species was re-examined, fully illustrated and redescribed. The additional material of the samples was only identified to genus and species level.
