Abstract
    A new species of ingolfiellid Amphipoda, Ingolfiella beatricis, collected from groundwater in a cave near Ljubljana in Slovenia is described. It is the first ingolfiellid, possessing developed "ocular lobes", found in inland fresh groundwater and is therefore of biogeographic interest. Its morphological characters suggest a marine origin, a supposition that is strengthened by the marine relationships of accompanying fauna.
