Abstract
    Copepods from Soqotra Archipelago, a largely unstudied microplate in the north-west Indian Ocean, were investigated. Seven species of six cyclopoid genera: Ectocyclops Brady, 1904; Halicyclops Norman, 1903; Mesocyclops Sars, 1914; Microcyclops Claus, 1893; Paracyclops Claus, 1893 and Tropocyclops Kiefer, 1927 were identified. Three of them are new to Science, viz. Mesocyclops wraniki sp. n., Halicyclops soqotranus sp. n., and Ectocyclops mozhae sp. n. They are described and figured.
