Abstract
    A new misophrioid copepod Misophriopsis okinawensis (Crustacea) is reported from Kume Island. Okinawa, South Japan. A full description of the new misophrioid is presented together with supplementary notes on the males of Misophria pallida Boeck, 1864. Consideration of the phylogeny of the new species led to a reassessment of the affinities between all the named species of Misophria Boeck, 1864 and Misophriopsis Boxshall. 1983. A new genus, Stygomisophira, is recognised based on Misophria kororiensis Boxshall et Iliffe, 1987. Diagnoses are presented of all three genera.
