Abstract
    A new genus Gnathophylleptum gen. nov. is erected for a highly characteristic new species of gnathophyllid shrimp from the Canary Islands : Gnathophylleptum tellei gen. nov., sp. nov. This species, which has been found in tbe coastal waters of Gran Canaria, is unusually slender for a member of tbe Gnathophyllidae and possesses quite distinctive third maxillipeds. Tbe relationship between Gnathophylleptum and related genera is discussed in detail. An identification key to all gnathophyllid genera is given.
