Abstract
    Thylacoplethus isaevae, a new species of colonial rhizocephalans, is described from the hermit crab Pagurus trigonocheirus collected in the Sea of Okhotsk, along the coast of Sakhalin Island. The new species differs from other known species of Thylacoplethus by the presence of complex spermatogenic bodies located within the mantle and the significantly larger size of its externae.
