Abstract
    A new copepod belonging to the little-known family Phyllodicolidae has been found in Galway Bay, western Ireland, infesting the phyilodocid polychaet Eteone longa. It is a strongly transformed species showing marked extra-ecdysial growth and possessing some interesting adaptive features. A description is presented, along with some notes on its functional biology and an assessment of its possible phylogenetic relationships.
