Abstract
    A new species of rotifer, Testudinella zhujiangensis sp. n. (Rotifera, Monogononta, Testudinellidae), is described from the littoral of an artificial brackish water lake and a mangrove swamp on Qi’ao Island of the Zhujiang/Pearl River estuary, Guangdong Province, south of China. It is closely related to Testudinella obscura ALTHAUS, 1957, but distinguished by its anterior truncated vase-shaped lorica, cross-sectional view, shallow inverted U-shaped foot opening, and small differences in the morphology of the trophi.
