Abstract
    Twenty-four poecilostomatoid and siphonostomatoid copepods are reported from hydrothermal sites in the eastern Pacific and on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. These include two siphonostomatoids from the East Pacific Rise: Aphotopontius rapunculus, new species, and Stygiopontius mirus, a species previously known only from the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Ecological remarks and a synoptic table of 67 species of copepods known at this time from hydrothermal sites and cold seeps are presented.
