Abstract
    Cumoniscus kruppi Bonnier, the only tantulocarid known from a cumacean host, is redescribed from a tantulus larva collected from the Bay of Biscay. The host is a male leuconid cumacean. This genus is placed in the family Deoterthridae, and can be distinguished from other genera by the pore pattern on the cephalic shield, the reduced setae on the sixth legs and the presence of tiny curved spinules on the endopod of thoracopods 2 to 5.
