    Haptolana yunca n. sp. is the 6th described species of an entirely hypogean-adapted genus. Cirolana (Anopsilana) yucatana n. sp. is the 9th described stygobitic and troglomorphic species in this subgenus. Both were discovered by diving in deep waters of cenotes in the Yucatan peninsula, a region from which five stygobitic cirolanid species were known. Jamaicalana BOTOSANEANU & ILIFFE, 1997, is synonymized with Cirolana (Anopsilana).
