Abstract
    Cyclopetta boetiusae sp. nov. is described from the continental shelf in the Arctic Laptev Sea. A phylogenetic analysis shows Cyclopetta SARS to be closely related to Paracyclopetta WELLS which in the future may even be synonymized with the former genus. The genus Arctocyclopina MOHAMMED & NEUHOF is the sister group of the Cyclopetta-Paracyclopetta clade. The next relative of these genera is possibly Paracyclopina SMIRNOV. However, incompleteness of the descriptions of the species currently ascribed to this genus, makes the polarity of several characters a matter of speculation. A new taxon Cyclopettidae fam. nov. is proposed to include all these genera. It is suggested that oithonid cyclopoids may be closely related to Cyclopettidae fam. nov.
