Abstract
    The generic assingment of Acanthomysis quadrispinosa Nouvel, 1965, which was later placed in Acanthomysis s. s. by Holmquist, is confirmed. A new genus, Notacanthomysis, is established for two known species, Acanthomysis hodgarti (W. M. Tattersall, 1922) and A. laticauda Liu and Wang, 1980, which are redescribed. The new genus is characterized by the form and armature of the fourth pleopod of the male and the telson.
