Amphinema gordini, a new species of pandeid anthomedusa, is described from one holotype and several paratypes found in perfect condition in deep-water (883 m depth) sediment trap samples recovered off northern Chile. The new Amphinema species is characterized by the presence of an apical chamber, prominent gonads located in the interradial position, and cellular strands located all along the radial canals from the ring canal to the top of the apical chamber, not always linking the radial canals to the exumbrella. The morphological features of the new species are compared with those of the 17 species of the genus Amphinema described in the literature.
