Abstract
    Female and male of the subterranean cyclopid copepod Speocyclops orcinus Kiefer, 1937 are described; the female for the first time. The material used in the present description was collected at the type locality, Cave Iriberi, a vast karst complex in the Department Atlantic Pyrenees, France. The specimens are compared with the type specimens lodged in the Friedrich Kiefer copepod collection at Karlsruhe, Germany. Sp, orcinus is found to be a true representative of the cyclopine genus Speocyclops and is reallocated to it
    from Allocyclops Kiefer, 1932 to which it has been recently assigned.
