Abstract
    We describe Progebiophilus bruscai n. sp., a bopyrid isopod (Isopoda : Epicaridea) infesting the common mud-shrimp Upogebia dawsoni Williams from the southwestern Gulf of California, Mexico. Its closest relatives are P. upogebiae (Hay) from the tropical and temperate western Atlantic and P. sinicus Markham from the tropical western Pacific. The male differs from such species by having both pleopods and uropods and by the female lacking a transverse row of tubercles on oostegit 5. A key to males of all species in the genus and an appendix with all species recorded from Mexico are also included.
