Abstract
    P. fulvofasciata sp. n. is described from Massachusetts Bay, USA. P. fulvofasciata sp. n. is most closely related to P. pacifica Vervoort, but the 2 spp differ significantly in male P. The complete larval (nauplii and copepodite) development of the new sp is also presented. There are 6 naupliar and 6 copepodite stages (the 6th copepodite being the adult) as in other harpacticoids. The development of the body and each appendage is figured and discussed. the complete life cycle (from hatch to hatch) takes 29 days at 17°C and is compared with that of several other spp.
