Abstract
    A new species of Hydroides (Polychaeta: Serpulidae), is described. Thirty specimens of Hydroides tenhovei sp. nov. were found on a flat PVC structure on soft-bottoms near Punta San Juanico and five additional specimens from Cabo San Lázaro, Baja California Sur, Mexico. The new species is characterized by the presence of a verticil with three large dorsal hammer-shaped spines, partially fused; basal internal spinules are absent in these spines; other spines curve outwards, with sharp tips and a basal internal spinule.
